I have been putting this one off because it is not the most positive review. I don't know what it is, but I just couldn't get into it. I think I was hoping for something like Owl City or Gomez, but it's a little too adult soft rock for me. If that's your thing, then go for it! It isn't that the music is bad, it just isn't my style. It is actually quite nice.
- 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.
- Band is on tour May/June/July supporting Michael Franti and in addition to festivals and headlining shows
