The latest single, “bicycle,” from 21-year-old Austrian producer/remixer, filous, is a fun, indie-pop stunner featuring songstress and collaborator, klei. The track was co-produced by Brisbane-based producer, Golden Vessel.
“Bicycle is what I would call a hippy-hop song, combining strummy acoustic guitars and mellotron vibes with old school hip hop elements! This is definitely a song that couldn’t have happened in any other time. One Austrian, one English and one Australian kid meeting in LA and jamming an idea for a few hours that ended up becoming this song! [sic]”
Filous is the alter-ego of Viennese student, Percy — at 10-years-old, he quickly began to discover his passion for music and quickly learned how to play various instruments. He immersed himself in various genres including progressive jazz to country, from bluegrass to black metal.
Six years later, he entered the music industry and quickly began to earn the likes of other artists including Selena Gomez, Jeremy Zucker, and Kiiara, and others.
Filous adds, “’Bicycle’ is also a song that really bridges old and new, from instrumentation to vocal recording, mixing and mastering. We mostly used vintage equipment and instruments and combined them with modern production and processing techniques! I really love how warm and nostalgic but still pumping this makes the song!”
