Leon Of Athens Shares Video, Announces Headline London Show
Greek indie-pop experimentalist Leon Of Athens has released a video for “Xenos”, the first single off his upcoming album, and announced a headline show at London’s The Lexington on March 17th.
The London-born musician, who previous studio effort (2014’s Global) garnered him rave critical reviews, describes the inspiration of the new track, whose title means “stranger”, as follows: “Xenos was initially inspired by the genocide of indigenous peoples. The song refers to any oppressed group of people who are forced to leave their land. On a personal note, it also refers to the feeling of being a stranger to your own self.”
Take a look at the video for “Xenos” below, where elements of folk and foreboding electro combine to produce an original and compelling hybridised sound.
