Discovery: Ferdous

Dutch electro pop artist Ferdous provides a modern twist on ’80s electro in his new track Counting Stars.

By Graeme Smith

As the beats kick in at the beginning of Counting Stars what immediately came to mind was The Eurythmics. The jumpy, dark electro notes were a trademark of their style. Yet, Ferdous’s vocals are a long way from Annie Lennox’s, with a smooth, dreamy, almost robotic vibe.

Counting Stars plods along nicely and is a great track for a chilled afternoon. Ferdous is a young Afghan-Dutch artist who could well be on his way to making a name for himself in the electro pop world. Check out Counting Stars below.
