Tethered Bones

Easily one of my new favorites, singer Eoin French teams up with producer Ian Ring to release Talos debut single “Tethered Bones.”  This track mixes different layers of emanating beats that perfectly compliment a voice reminiscent of Bon Iver.

“Tethered Bones” has an incredibly original sound, which is super refreshing for a song about the complications of love and relationships.  The introduction of pulsing beats that flow into French’s instrumental voice almost sounds like the echo of a beating heart.  These beats taper off at the opening of the vocals and for good reason; the melody found in French’s voice needs little support.  He has the sort of voice that would seriously make anything worth listening to.  But even with his stand-alone, radiating tone, we absolutely love the soul and spirit that come from the composition of sounds underlying such a captivating singer.

There’s just something about “Tethered Bones” that is so infectious and emotional.  It isn’t hard for a song to evoke deep emotion, but it is unusual for a song to leave you feeling euphoric while also embodying the pain and anguish of an emotion as complex as love.  That’s what this track is all about: expressing the complicated transformation of love.

“Tethered Bones” just gets better and better each time you listen to it, and now Eoin French and Ian Ring have some pretty high expectations to live up to with this new project.
