You’ve probably heard their eerily addictive dream-pop ballad “Kandi,” with its hooky chorus of “He called me baby, baby all night long.” Or perhaps seen their performances on the daytime talk show of Ellen DeGeneres, who’s such a huge fan she included them in her birthday-broadcast plans this January.
But next Monday, May 9 at 6:30 p.m., you can catch the buzz live, and for free, when Britain’s brainy One Eskimo play the Apple Store at One Stockton Street in San Francisco. It’s a show definitely worth catching in such an intimate setting.
Frontman Kristian Leontiou has one of those timeless, smoky voices that fits perfectly with the ethereal folk-pop of his group, which he formed after unsuccessfully flying solo for a few years in London. Now, he’s having fun with his new quartet format. He’s even subdivided One Eskimo’s “The Adventures Of One Eskimo” debut into chapters instead of songs, and constructed an entire animated series set to said music.
