Cork native Eoin French has released a new track from his solo act, Talos. Talos has been on the rise for the past year, with tracks like "Your Love is an Island" making it onto our own Hot Press tracks of 2016 list, and other tracks like "In Time" even getting airplay on American television. This new track "Odyssey," takes the familiar pulsing electronica chords and builds up to a thundering drumline. Like his other tracks, the song is atmospheric, somehow combining echoing chords that sound like they're underwater with glittering keyboard riffs that sound like they come from another galaxy.
As Eoin himself put it in a past interview with Hot Press, his music is “electronics meets straight up songwriting. The song has to stand up on its own before anything else. The song comes first, and the production is heavily based on that. Writing has to remain personal: it has to be something that resonates strongly with me, the people I’m with, the place I’m in, or what I’m doing.”
