Irish Eoin French is best known as Talos. His highly anticipated sophomore album, ‘Far Out Dust’, is set to be released tomorrow – Friday 8th February – via BMG. The title track from the album has made its debut a few hours ago, showcasing a concentrate of ethereal choruses and beautifully crafted thin melodies, reaching a climax that brings to surface his signature sound.
Commenting the track, French says: “The essence of ‘Far Out Dust’ is the feeling of being cast out into this unknown and then coming back with all these fragments of something you can put back together. It’s the moment of transition when everything collapses into one.”
The number follows two other recent songs taken from the LP, ‘The Light Upon Us’ and ‘See Me’, both of which contributed to the build-up to the release of a record which will certainly mark the definitive affirmation of an artist who has grown its popularity through a number of brilliant live performances (touring with the likes of Peter, Bjorn and John, as well as Editors.
