Timoleon Veremis (Leon of Athens) (GR)

Musician

London based indie-pop star Leon of Athens channels the flamboyant beauty of Sufjan Stevens and Grizzly Bear alongside a similar widescreen pop sensibility as Imagine Dragons and Tame Impala. His brand new album Xenos (EMI/Universal) is a beautiful, thoughtful piece of work. It showcases just why he has become a huge live draw in Greece – where he plays to audiences in their thousands – his ever-growing fanbase across Europe and his rising profile in the USA where he has just been confirmed to appear at SXSW, Okeechobee, Firefly Music Festival and Summerfest. 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).
