One eskimO : {a Music Review}

It's my pleasure to introduce to you One eskimO, lead singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou with band mates Pete Rinaldi {guitar}, Jamie Sefton {bass, horns} and Adam Falkner {drums}.

Currently, 'Kandi' is the #1 adult alternative, most played song on adult radio.  Take a minute (actually four) to check out the video here or their live performance on Ellen to see what the talk is all about.

Fans of Massive Attack, Snow Patrol, Gomez or Damien Rice will find it hard not to tune into to sounds of One eskimO and hang out and chill.

"...catchy, ambient pop." is what Billboard Magazine calls the sound of One eskimO's self-titled debut album and the LA Times magazine hails the song 'Kandi' "a beautiful, aspirational track."

The album is available in stores now or you can check out the deluxe version available on iTunes right here!  This features a bonus track and pair the album with The Adventures of One eskimO, an animated story set to the music of the entire album.  How cool is that?

Here's the track listing and an opportunity to get a free download of "Astronauts" via Twitter.

I love the overall low key and chill out sounds of this band.  My favorite song, while not necessarily the acclaimed hit 'Kandi', of all the songs, I'm totally loving 'Chosen One'.  The whole album is pretty mellow and has a pretty good chill out factor.

Now, you may have caught One eskimO opening for Tori Amos last year and will be opening for Michael Franti & Spearhead through their May and June tour.  (All shows except Mountain Jam & Mile High Festival)

As a memeber of the One2One Network, I had the opportunity to sign up and receive a complimentary copy of One eskimO's debut album to review and post my thoughts on my personal blog.  I was not further compensated for my time or comments on this product.
