One eskimO: A New Band With A New Sound That I Think You Might Enjoy!
I am a big fan of new and interesting music. When I was contacted by the One2One Network to check out a new band called " One eskimO" I was intrigued with their music.
Here is some information about who they are and the bzzzz that is currently surrounding the release of their first album:
One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed English band fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums).
They currently have the #1 adult alternative song called 'Kandi' which you may have already heard since it's the most played song on all adult rock radio 4 weeks and counting
Billboard Magazine calls One eskimO's self-titled debut album "...catchy, ambient pop." and Los Angeles Times Magazine hails the song "Kandi" “a beautiful, aspirational track.” The album is available in stores now.
The album release comes in tandem with a full length animated film. “Hometime”, one of the tracks that an animated short was first done with proved to be quite a sensation. It received numerous honors at film festivals around the world, as well as a 2008 British Animation Award.
Here is the video for the first release from this album; the name of the song is "Kandi" and I think you will really enjoy it:)
