London based indie-pop star Leon of Athens channels the flamboyant beauty of Sufjan Stevens, Perfume Genius and Grizzly Bear alongside a similar widescreen pop sensibility as Tame Impala, Foster The People and James Bay.His brand new album Xenos is a beautiful, thoughtful piece of work.
The album follows the highly acclaimed release of his debut album Global, championed by the likes of The Guardian, NME, Q, New York Times and more. It is produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything) and is informed lyrically by the refugee crisis, the rise of fascist groups in Europe and the US, but also personal upheavals: fractured relationships, lost faith, youth, freedom and death.
From the uplifting indie-pop of previous singles ‘Aeroplane’ and ‘Fire Inside You’, to the dark creeping electronics of the title track ‘Xenos’, Leon Of Athens proves himself an intriguing and exciting force.
In the spring he heads to the USA where he performs at Okeechobee Festival, SXSW in Austin, Texas and Firefly music festival and Summerfest in Millwaukee.
