Leon of Athens
London-based Greek indie-pop star Leon of Athens will be releasing his forthcoming album Xenos, produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Marina & The Diamonds) on 9th February. Channelling a similar widescreen pop sensibility as Bastille, James Bay and M83 alongside the flamboyant beauty of Sufjan Stevens, Bright Eyes, Perfume Genius and Tame Impala, the album Xenos is a beautiful, thoughtful piece of work.
It showcases just why he has become a huge live draw in Greece – where he plays to audiences in their thousands – his ever-growing fanbase across Europe and his rising profile in the USA where he has just been confirmed to appear at Okeechobee Festival and South By South West in March.
From the uplifting indie-pop of the singles ‘Aeroplane’ and ‘Fire Inside You’, to the dark creeping electronics of the title track and ‘Xenos’, Leon Of Athens proves himself an intriguing and exciting force.
