TALOS ★★★★
Other Voices

TALOS in the perfect surroundings of the over-stuffed Other Voices wooden Wendy house is the ideal way to ease yourself into your Picnic weekend good and proper. The sky-scraping vocals and Sigur Ros soft melodies bewitch the chatty festival-fresh crowd into a hushed half-silence.

The former architect Eoin French knows a thing or two about a good build and boy can he assemble them to dizzy heights. A cacophony of synths, strings and guitars weave together along with his glass-sharp falsetto to create a heavy moody stew. With the set list mostly pulling from new album Wild Alee, it’s an introduction to soon-to-be favourites like the glacial This is Us Colliding and the brooding Odyssey.

With his fanbase extending ever further, this may be one of those mythical Picnic gigs that hundreds claim they were in attendance at, when TALOS start to soundtrack serious moments in Netflix binged telly shows and take to stages much bigger.

Gig in three words: brittal emosh moments
