One eskimO, Recorded Live In Concert


November 27, 2009 from WXPN – Singer-songwriter Kristan Leontiou was already an established musician in the U.K. when he decided to start over from scratch, joining three others to form the imaginative and (literally) animated group One eskimO. The band mixes catchy and provocative pop with a multimedia approach that’s made it an Internet sensation. Click the link above to hear One eskimO’s live performance from WXPN and World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. With the help of Gravy Media, the group produces short films to accompany its songs. Those videos were an instant hit, receiving honors at film festivals, as well as a British Animation Award in 2008. Appropriately, One eskimO’s self-titled debut album is an audio-visual project, complete with an impressive assortment of animation. Still, while self-produced visuals are a notable component of the band’s work, One eskimO’s heart and soul lies in music that’s as joyous, expressive and colorful as its films.
