Talos has made quite the splash in the industry, and it’s not hard to see why. Bursting to the forefront of the blogosphere back in March with his debut song, “Tethered Bones,” this Irish multi-faceted artist racked up over 300,000 plays. Some people take years to get that many plays on a track. He saw it shortly after the track went live.
Boasting a similar new-school electronic R&B vibe, we find a little more inclusion of classic instrumentation in the build. Somewhat reminiscent of Active Child or James Vincent McMorrow, “Bloom” carries a chilling build, complete with haunting piano, rolling tom hits, and those oh-so-glorious falsettos. The song takes a cinematic turn at the two minute mark when a devilishly deep bassline hits, creating beyond-sultry vibes. It’s undeniably charming, causing you to sink deep in its soothing grip. Do yourself a favor and just submit. You’ll be glad you did.
“Tethered Bones”/”Bloom” is released on 12″/digital on Feel Good Lost on December 01, with remixes from WIFE (Tri-Angle), Eomac (The Trilogy Tapes/R+S) and Slow Magic (Downtown Records.) We suggest you mark your calendars.
