Talos – Odyssey

Talos by Brendan Canty

Talos by Brendan Canty

We want to push the new breed of indietronica music in Europe and beyond. Helping us succeed in this quest is Cork based Talos, the musical project of Eoin French.

His new track, ‘Odyssey’ is enticing in nature with ethereal vocals and divine production.

Talos explains about ‘Odyssey’, “In any endeavour we find ourselves at that point of doubt. Those moments where you question yourself. That’s what the line, ‘In this odyssey, it’s hard to leave…’ refers to. It’s a beautiful and testing cycle. “I was asking myself some pretty big questions. Am I doing the right thing? Is this worth it? Am I deluding myself?! And I think in the end, the answer is yes to all three. These feelings come and go. The thoughts pass. Sometimes the delusions get realised. And we move on.”

Talos’s debut album, ‘Wild Alee’ will be out on 21 April.

The David Nelligan Thing – Who Is Silvia?

David Nelligan Who is Synthia

The David Nelligan Thingfrom Cork, Ireland, released album ‘Dark Matters’ earlier this year; a folk-pop melting pop with some impressive DIY home-made music videos. Having now found a more synth driven, indietronica sound, The David Nelligan Thing have released a new E.P, the title track of which is ‘Who Is Silvia?’, an arrangement based on lyrics by William Shakespeare. 

The track uses overdriven synth bass lines, with lightly pulsating melody lines, and the video includes the Kansas City Civic Ballet, adapting their scarf-dance from Léo Delibes’s ballet ‘Sylvia’ to the new banging beats and swirling synths of TDNT’s ‘Who Is Silvia? (By William Shakespeare)’.

The David Nelligan Thing’s E.P. ‘Who Is Synthia?’ is now available to download for free (or to pay!) on Bandcamp.
