As a self-proclaimed musicphile, I am always interested in checking out new bands. Through my partnership with the One2One Network, I was given the opportunity to listen to a cd by a new English band called One eskimO.
Billboard magazine has referred to One eskimO's self-titled debut album as "...catchy, ambient pop." I agree that their sound is definitely one that I would classify as pop, but I can't really identify another band that I think they sound similar to; which, in my book, is a good thing. Their sound is mellow and has some wonderful acoustic tones to it with both piano and guitar.
One of my favorite songs from the cd is called "Astronauts" and you can get a free download of that song by clicking here!
One eskimO currently has the #1 adult alternative song called "Kandi" which you might have already heard since it's the most played song on all adult rock radio for 4 weeks and counting. Check out the video for "Kandi"!
If you enjoy live concerts as much as I do, you will definitely want to check this band out live. They begin their tour of the U.S. tomorrow, May 14th, in sunny Miami, FL! You can check out their entire tour schedule here.
One eskimO is definitely a band that will make it into regular rotation on my iPod. Their sound is great for hanging out around the house, background music for a dinner party or reading a good book while relaxing by the pool. I hope you'll check them out on iTunes or in a music store near you!
