*ENDED* One eskimO Album Review and Giveaway – *Ends 5/18/10

CONGRATS TO COMMENT #2 JENNA W.
 

 

I had the opportunity to review the band One eskimO, an adult contemporary rock band fronted by Kristian Leontiou, a London-based singer-songwriter and includes musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums).

 

I love all kinds of music so I was excited to do my first music review. This album is very mellow, one you can picture yourself listening too while relaxing in the park, or lying out on the beach. Reminiscent of James Blunt in some songs with a little bit of Cold Play thrown in some songs. It’s been called “ambient” but I don’t get that vibe at all, although it is melodic.

 

Over all, I enjoyed the album. The songs flow nicely into one another and have a calming aspect to them. If you want some “chill out” music, this is definitely the album for you.

 

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. It is very catchy and will surely get stuck in your head.

 

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.

 

You can catch One eskimO on tour May/June/July supporting Michael Franti and in addition to festivals and headlining shows.
