Talos Shares ‘See Me’

Cork native Talos (a.k.a. Eoin French) has announced the release of new single ‘See Me’. The track was produced by Talos, Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow) and mixed by Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire).

“The song is about an inability to love someone,”explains Eoin on the inspiration behind the track. “I drew a lot of lyrics from the story of the serial killer, Ed Kemper. The irrepressible power of that kind of need to be seen, or wanted, fascinates me. We all want to be accepted, to feel loved, but sometimes our inability to see our own qualities causes us to destroy the very possibility of it.” Further new music from Talos to be announced soon.

Following a recent UK tour with Editors, Talos has announced a string of live dates in the run up to Christmas, which includes a sold-out show at London’s Omeara on November 22nd. Alongside his headline UK and EU run in November, the band will support Peter, Bjorn and John on a selection of their North American and Canada dates into December and will be supporting Aurora on their US tour in early 2019. Full tour details below.

Talos debut album ‘Wild Alee’ was originally released in April 2017 and was rereleased in June this year as a special deluxe reissue on BMG. Produced and mixed by Talos and Ross Dowling — whose credits include albums by James Vincent McMorrow and Bell X1 — ‘Wild Alee’ is a personal, emotive and ambitious electronic pop record; one that both looks to the past and signposts to the future. Upon its original release overseas in April 2017, ‘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 20 million streams on Spotify, and made the shortlist for the prestigious RTÉ Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year.

EU headline tour starts in November, sold-out date at London’s Omeara on November 22
