    City Of The Sun

    Alternative Rock

    New York’s genre-bending trio City of the Sun have been breaking instrumental-rock norms since their inception in 2011. The band’s sound has an array of influences including indie rock, American folk, flamenco, and blues; it’s been called worldly, cinematic, a mix between Rodrigo y Gabriela and Explosions in the Sky. City of the Sun features guitarists John Pita, Avi Snow, and percussionist Zach Para. Having honed their signature sound as buskers in NYC, they gained wider attention playing TED Talk conferences and Sofar Sounds sessions across the US, and posting live videos from exotic locations around the world.

     

    COS has since been established as a powerhouse group in the post-rock sphere. They’ve sold out New York’s top indie venues Irving Plaza, Bowery Ballroom and Gramercy Theater; toured with Peter Bjorn & John, G.Love, STS9, and Thievery Corporation; were featured emerging artists at Billboard’s Hot 100, Firefly, and Bottle Rock Napa music festivals; and scored “The C Word” documentary soundtrack (directed by Meghan O’Hara and narrated by Morgan Freeman).

    In 2016, City of the Sun released their first live album “to the sun and all the cities in between”, debuting at #12 on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. Lead track "Everything" hit #2 on Spotify's US Viral 50 chart and #5 on the Global Viral Chart; it has over 11 million streams to date on the platform.

    The band completed their first European tour in 2017 and released UNTITLED EP, with lead track “Perfect Instance” garnering over four million streams on Spotify in the EP's first month.

  • Leon of Athens

    Leon of Athens

    Pop Rock

    London-based Greek indie-pop star Leon of Athens will be releasing his forthcoming album Xenos, produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Marina & The Diamonds) on February 9th. 

    Channelling a similar widescreen pop sensibility as Bastille, James Bay and M83 alongside the flamboyant beauty of Sufjan Stevens, Bright Eyes, Perfume Genius and Tame Impala, the album Xenos 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 Okeechobee Festival and South By South West in March.

    From the uplifting indie-pop of the 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. Current single ‘Utopia’ pulls together melancholic electronics and solemn vocal tones before breaking into a jubilant bright chorus bursting with optimism. 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’ and the tender, dreamy ‘Moonlight’. 


    Leon Of Athens has been inspired by life within a country that has been facing many challenges during recent years. His music is informed by the refugee crisis, the rise of fascist groups in Europe and Brexit and also personal upheavals: fractured relationships, youth, freedom and death.

    Xenos follows the highly acclaimed release of his 2015 debut album Global, which was championed by the likes of The Guardian, NME, Q, New York Times and more.

    He recently completed a sold out UK and European tour.
