One eskimO Review

Are you a fan of Massive AttackSnow Patrol, Gomez or Damien Rice?  It's hard to pigeon hole the sound of One eskimO, but ambient, electro, acoustic hits the right note.  If you love vibey music that sets the mood to hang out, chill out and tune in, then this new project is just for you.

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, and if you haven't heard it, take a minute to check out the video for 'Kandi' HERE and their live perform ance on EllenHERE to see what we're talking about.

    Before receiving their CD, I hadn't heard of this group but I really enjoyed their music.  This CD has a really good variety of sounds on it.  And their music is fun and quirky but with a grown up feel that I really liked.  I get plenty of chance to enjoy kids tunes as a mom of three, but it's great to have something more grown up to enjoy too!!
    From the feel of their CD, I'd venture to guess that they'd be entertaining in concert.  But don't just take m word for it, check out the links below for a free download or check out their videos on youtube!!

    Thank you to One2One Network for this review opportunity.
