Biography

One eskimO was ‘born’ in 2004 and is the brain child of Kristian Leontiou. At the time Kristian was at the end of promoting his debut album: Some Day Soon (Polydor) which sold over 200,000 copies. His debut single (Story Of My Life) also went Top 10 in the UK singles chart. Kris (as he is known to his friends) grew up in the north-west suburbs of London, his first experiences of music coming from his older sisters , who would regularly shake the Leontiou household whilst practicing with their respective punk bands, in their bedrooms! At only 10 years old Kris was mesmerized when sisters Anna and Alex would sneak him in to watch them perform at venues like The Mean Fiddler. When most kids were getting used to weekend lay-ins, at 14 Kristian had already developed a self survival ‘street’ mentality and had already undertaken work in an array of ‘grown up’ situations that not many so young are exposed to. The resulting attribute is someone very much of his own mind, a humble belief in his own visions creatively. Often he was a child in an adult’s world. It’s no surprise then at only 15, Kristian was introduced to recording studios, adding guest vocals on friend’s garage & dance demos, and using any down time to begin his first explorations musically. His early and lasting influences on these initial compositions were acts like Arrested Development, The Fugees, REM, Groove Armada and Finlay Quay.

    Я в восторге только от одной их песни Givin Up (Don Diablo Mix). Но ее я обожаю, даже одно время на звонке была... Уже пару лет ее слушаю, не надоедает....

    'One eskimO' is really quite a special find. It was one of those impulsive album purchases I made in a shop, with no prior knowledge of the band's existence, and nothing but the capsule review quotes sticker to go by. Imagine my relief and pleasant surprise in finding that the capsule reviews were actually right on the money! Great little album - deserves far wider recognition.

    one eskimo pretty much explain why i can't live without music. their music feels like diving into another world for 45min where everything's beautiful. there's not even one bad track on the album, "amazing" and "chosen one" being my favorites at the moment. btw if you haven't watched "the adventures of one eskimo" yet, do it! it's amazing (no pun intended)

    I first heard their song on Bones "Kandi"

    Against general opinion, I think Kandi is the only weak and bad track on the album. [3]
