filous has shared “For Love”, the title track off his forthcoming EP. The song is anchored by newcomer klei’s sultry vocals and features crisp, guitar lines and emphatic choruses that will linger in your head long after the song is over.
Of the track filous says, “klei and I made this song in Amsterdam with our good friend Rik Annema. What I love most about the song is that it really captures the easy going and fun time we had making it! It’s really about just letting go, being happy and living your life for love!”
Evolving from instrumentalist to beatmaker to writer, filous – the alter-ego of 20-year old Viennese student Percy — has always been something of an enigma, driven by an incessant curiosity and a need for discovery. First showcasing his unusually inquisitive mind at the tender age of 10 years old, he soon became proficient in dozens of instruments and started to immerse himself in far-flung influences ranging from progressive jazz to country, from bluegrass to black metal. The concept of “filous” emerged once Percy began experimenting with electronic production, teaching himself via Youtube tutorials with all of his earliest remixes built from artists he discovered on the streaming platform.
After spending time writing and living in Vienna over the past two years, he watched the local electronic scene bloom and evolve, and eventually opened himself up to the idea of collaborating, with For Love featuring his first-ever co-written tracks.
