One eskimO - Kandi


One eskimO is a two-dimensional (literally) acoustic band dreamt up by London singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou. Produced by Rollo Armstrong (Faithless, Dido), their debut single “Kandi” and its animated music video are fantastically enchanting. Toby Green of The Independent says “Kristian Leontiou...possesses a voice you could imagine appearing in Simon Cowell's wet dreams.”

Hi
Thanks for the review, but just to say One Eskimo are a real band, not just animated - check this:

Thanks for the comment!

I understand One eskimO is not a virtual band in exactly the same sense as say, Gorillaz, but rather, a real band telling an animated character's story. PT Walkley took your concept even further with his last album and music videos, which I wrote about just a few days after this post.

I'd still expect the Gorillaz comparison though since your first music video features the animated character and all the press "photos" on your website and your MySpace are of the cartoon.
