Talos & Saint Sister
Talos is Eoin French, who makes patient, plaintive electronic pop music. Live, Talos expands out to a six piece with recent shows including Other Voices, Body & Soul alongside international dates in Eurosonic, London and New York .
Saint Sister’s music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk’—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
