Ferdous teams up with French label Kitsunè for the release of his new single ’Talk 2’.
Ferdous is a 27-year-old Afghan-Dutch recording artist, writer and producer. As an independent artist, his project has already garnered continuous support from i-D (Vice) and international media. Next to his Electronica alter ego TRACE7000 signed to Turbo Recordings, Ferdous is also half of pop duo Klyne.
He wrote and produced their self-titled debut album, and the single 'Water Flow' already reached 22m streams on Spotify. The duo played shows across Europe, US and UK and opened for artists like Metronomy and Christine and the Queens.
Ferdous took several years to develop his solo project and is now ready for a string of releases throughout 2020 and after.
His new single 'Talk 2' will be released on Parisian label Kitsuné Musique, and is included in their new streaming-only playlist Kitsuné Hot Stream - a single-release project showcasing hand-picked curation of emerging and upcoming talents from both the musical and the visual worlds.
Ferdous on 'Talk 2':
'Human relations can be exhausting. When things go wrong, the easiest thing to do is to blame the other and give up, the hardest thing to do is finding a solution. Talk 2 is about the latter, when you embrace the fact that you’re about to step into an emotional shitstorm in the hopes of fixing something.
Growing up I’ve found that it’s a good thing to lower your expectations in people. People are flawed, no matter how much we condition ourselves to think otherwise in this digital universe where everything and everyone appears to be “perfect”.
Being human means being flawed, but I also believe we have a natural tendency to find common ground with one another despite our flaws, no matter how difficult, confrontational or ugly the conversation can get.
Sometimes it’s worth the trouble, even when you don’t know if you’ll be able to fix something, or if you end up being hurt. This is what the song is about.”
