New Music: Ferdous – Talk 2

Ferdous is a Afghan-Dutch electro pop artist who I first discovered through his track Counting StarsTalk 2 is his new one, a collaboration with Paris label Kitsuné Musique.

While Counting Stars has an upbeat ’80s vibe to it, Talk 2 starts a little melancholic. The track is about trying to fight through relationship problems and the opening feels like a reflection of the hard times.

The chorus is the antithesis, bright, optimistic and pleading. “You’ve gotta talk to me” Ferdous sings with his gentle vocals. It feels like a tonic for anyone who is experiencing, or has ever experienced, relationship difficulties.

Talk 2 is another great track from an electro pop artist who really knows his stuff. Check it out below.
