/ MIMOSA’S DREAM RECORDS / SOUNDS GOOD /
Leon of Athens is one of few artists we’ve followed throughout the years. We become acquainted with the Greek’s music since the release of debut album Global back in 2014, and have been patiently waiting for new music since. “Xenos” is the first taste of Leon of Athens music for 2017, and fortunately it’ll be followed up a new record that’ll also be released this year. Awesome.
With haunting guitar melodies, pulsating synthesisers and rolling drums “Xenos” is a track that drives home some solid pop qualities through an instrumental that comes a little left-field. This moody sound is directed by a vocal delivery that fights with itself, often splitting up into numerous voices that contend to take the spotlight – immediately adding tons of layers to this off-kilter pop tune. It’s textbook Leons of Athens, and one that gets us excited once again to hear more from him.
