“Knots” by Filous

"Knots" by Filous is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day."

Filous, recently announced his forthcoming release For Love in addition to the announcement, Filous is sharing his new single “Knots”. The track features electro-pop newcomer klei, and was inspired by a desire for balance between “old and modern, organic and electronic, playful and heavy.” Crisp tropical synth production underlies klei’s airy vocals.

Evolving from an instrumentalist to beatmaker, filous – AKA: 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 learned 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.

Following in the footsteps of the genre’s best and brightest from Flume to ODESZA, filous has returned with a batch of new tracks. 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.
