Leon Of Athens Unveils New Single ‘Utopia’
London-based Greek indie-pop experimentalist Leon Of Athens has released his brand new single Utopia. The song is the latest to be taken from his forthcoming album Xenos, produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything), due out January 19th. I am in love with the way he pulled together melancholic electronics and solemn vocal tones before breaking into a jubilant bright chorus bursting with optimism. A gorgeous track indeed. Stream it below!

The album Xenos is a beautiful, thoughtful piece of work, informed by the refugee crisis, the rise of fascist groups in Europe and Brexit, but also personal upheavals: fractured relationships and death in the family.

From the uplifting indie-pop of previous singles Aeroplane and Fire Inside You, to the dark creeping electronics of the title track and Serpents Egg, Leon Of Athens proves himself an intriguing and exciting force. There are delicate moments on the stark piano led ballads of Letters To My Father and Final Moment, while the album closes with the joyous ode to his favourite place in the world Corfu.
