The second incarnation of my blog
This time around I would like to recommend a song called Kandi by the group One Eskimo. The track was released on the bands’ eponymous album in 2009. It’s a twee track, but incredibly catchy, using a sample from Candi Staton singing a song called “He called me baby”. The singer is Kristian Leontiou, who had a great album out in 2004, which is worth checking out.
One Eskimo is a great example of a band that failed to capitalise on the momentum they had started to build. Their website has been saying “new site coming soon” and “new album coming soon” for well over a year. What a waste, especially as the American market was interested. Anyway… the video is the story of a cute little Eskimo.
