New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Cork, Ireland-based Talos (a.k.a. Eoin French) has debuted the video for new single "See Me" via Flood Magazine. Says Flood, "'See Me' is a breezy orchestral affair positioning Eoin French's soaring Ezra Koenig falsetto over downbeat boom-bap electronics," while calling the video "equally as lush" as the song itself. Watch it HERE. The track was produced by Talos, Ross Dowling (James Vincent
McMorrow) and mixed by Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire).
Says French about the video, "The 'See Me' lyrics were partly inspired by the life of serial killer Ed Kemper. For the video, it would have been an easy thing to pick up on this dark subject matter and make something directly inspired by it. Instead what we have is, in a way, a sort of prequel to his life. We are confronted with innocence and humanity, and a character that finds himself in a world where he is an outsider seeking his place in it."
Following a recent UK tour with Editors
and a US string of dates supportingPeter, Bjorn and John, Talos will return to North America
to support Auroraon their tour in early 2019. Full tour details below.
Talos debut album Wild Alee was originally released in April 2017 and was re-released in June this year as a special deluxe reissue on BMG. Wild Alee was hailed as "a spectacularly assured debut" (The Irish Times), while The Independent called it "stunning," and The Line Of Best Fit raved that the music "will leave your hairs standing on end." Some of the earliest fans in the States included The New York Times T Magazine, which praised the songs' "taut, chilling complexity," and The FADER, which swooned for their "swirling splendour". The record garnered love from BBC Radio
1, racked up more than 25 million streams on Spotify, and made the shortlist for the prestigious RTÉ Choice Music
Prize for Irish Album of the Year.
