Strongly felt in the “Seven Nation Army” cover that first brought her to our attention, these influences are still there on “1965″ and yet make way for a pop twist as Zella Day’s captivating vocals expand to tell a beautiful, nostalgic tale. Our friends at Blah Blah Blah Science are releasing the track as the B-side to Sweet Ophelia next week.

It only takes one play to be touched and moved by Talos‘ impressive debut track. Beautiful vocals wrapped in buzzing synths and slick percussions: the song’s build up is simply sublime, and the finish is as mesmerizing as it gets. Those who in the past few months have heard and loved music by Sohn, RY X or Chet Faker will inevitably fall for Talos. Apart from this track and his Irish origins we don’t know much about Eoin French, but that’s plenty enough for an obsession to start.
