Talos Shares Video for “Far Out Dust”

Cork, Ireland-based Talos (a.k.a. Eoin French) just released his latest album Far Out Dust on BMG last month and just yesterday, debuted the video for it’s title track via Billboard. Watch it HERE.

Says French of “Far Out Dust” – “This was the first song I wrote for the album, It outlined a set of sonic rules for the record, so to speak. In the studio, myself and [co-producer] Ross Dowling worked to make this song feel like a continuous build. I wanted it to die just at the point that it felt like it should peak. This reflected the sentiment of the overall song in that it was intended to capture a last goodbye.”

Following a recent UK tour with Editors, a string of US dates supporting Peter, Bjorn and John, and a US tour supporting Aurora, Talos will return to North America for SXSW (see Talos in NPR’s Austin 100) and a brief run in April/May.

Far Out Dust — a stunning blend of organic and electronic music with a gorgeous sense of discovery and wonder — was written and recorded all over the globe, including New York City, Los Angeles, London, Dublin, Cork, and Reykjavik. Where Talos’ acclaimed debut, Wild Alee, was a solitary affair about isolation and escape, Far Out Dust finds Talos embarking on new journeys, drawing strength and comfort from lived experience and deep human connection. The result is both his most ambitious songwriting and most sophisticated studio work, a collection that radiates with creative confidence even as it wrestles with the pain of doubt and regret.

French and his longtime production partner Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Bell X1) shouldered much of the instrumental load on the album, in addition to working with producers like Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, Wet), Valgeir Sigurðsson (Sigur Ros, Feist) and Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire), who also contributed a number of mixes. They then handed over the mastering duties to Emily Lazar (Coldplay, Angel Olsen).
