This was a new band for my collection of music and right away I discovered why One eskimO is a critically acclaimed band. An English band fronted by singer, songwriter, Kristen Leontiou surrounded by the talent of musicians, Pete Rinalid on guitar, Jamie Sefton on horns and bass and Adam Falkner on drums they combine to make some great music.
I was given this opportunity from One2One Network. If you’re not already a member of this great site, I encourage you to take a look.
They currently hold the top slot Adult Alternative Son with their current single, “Kandi”. I was surprised how many places I heard this song after it was brought to my attention. It is great! I love the chorus “called me baby, baby, baby all night long” and I can almost sing along with the entire song.
One eskimO’s music is mellow and relaxing. They’ve been compared to Snow Patrol and Sigur Ros.
While I enjoy this album and it’s mellow pace, I appreciate “Kandi” because it has more of an upbeat tempo in comparison to the other songs, that after awhile seem to all meld into one. It’s a great CD for just chilling and unwinding and I enjoy it.
One eskimO is currently on tour. They focus on their talent of voice without the electronica surge. It’s a pure sound that makes for a great concert.
