London-based Greek indie-pop experimentalist Leon Of Athens has released the video for his new single ‘Aeroplane’, the first single proper to be taken from his forthcoming album produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything) due out later this year.
Capturing escapism, love in the modern age, and uninhibited freedom, the ‘Aeroplane’ video follows a number of interconnected stories. It captures a beautiful long distance relationship, the innocence of childhood, and overcoming turbulent times.
‘Aeroplane’ leads with solemn guitars and a sole kick drum, while the verses create conflicting emotions, the song breaks into an uplifting, chiming chorus, becoming a hopeful ode to modern day love and its unpredictable highs and lows.
Watch the video for ‘Aeroplane’ below:
Leon recently completed a sold out UK and European headline tour and has more live dates to be announced shortly.
He has been inspired by life within a country that has been facing many challenges during recent years. Leon’s music has become a huge draw in his home country where he has played to audiences of thousands, and has become highly championed overseas gaining praise from the likes of The Guardian, NME, Q, New York Times and more.
“Brainy pop inspired by Bernardo Bertolucci, inflected with electronic, folk and other flavours”
“Leon of Athens has mastered the art of electronica-tickled, horn-smattered, melodic pop.”
