one eskimO. if you are like me, it is possible you have never heard of them or anything about them.
here is what i have learned. one eskimO is an english band with lead singer and songwriter, kristian leontiou. he is joined by pete rinaldi on guitar, jamie sefton on bass and horns and adam falkner on drums. they currently have the #1 adult alternative song called "kandi." billboard magazine labels them as "...catchy, ambient pop," while the los angeles times magazine calls "kandi," "a beautiful aspirational track."
i have enjoyed listening to it in the kitchen while cooking supper and cleaning up afterward. the music reminds me of seal. i find it relaxing and enjoyable as background music for whatever i have going on. tate was getting ready to go outside when he asked me what was playing. i asked him what he thought about it, and he said he liked the "fast songs."
i'm not sure i would exactly call the songs "fast." i think they are the kind of music that bill and i would like to put on when we are relaxing together at the end of a long day. it would be nice to have in the background while catching up together and even to help things progress in a more romantic direction (!).
i haven't had a lot of time to let the songs sink in individually but the one that keeps catching my attention is "kandi." it is definitely my favorite so far. i can see why it is #1 among adult alternative songs.
if you would like to check them out for yourself, you can watch their video, or find them on itunes or even download a free copy of "astronauts" through twitter. i often feel out of touch when it comes to the latest and greatest bands but i am definitely glad to be in on this great group and their first release.
i received a copy of one eskimO both to download and on cd for the purpose of this review from the one2one network. i have in no other way been compensated for this review. i will be entered to win a giftcard because i posted about this album but this has in no way affected my comments here.
