One EskimO - Hometown (2007)

One eskimO are a four piece indie band from London, consisting of Kristian Leontiou (vocals), Adam Falkner (drums), Martin Waugh (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass and horns). The band have since released the heartwarming 'Hometime' (early December 2007, U.K.). The video to Hometime is animated by Smuglling Peanuts and is currently circulating through the underground, appearing on MTV TWO's 120 Minutes session and online. The band's animated video has been nominated for the Public Choice award at the 2008 British Animation Awards.

The little eskimo spent most of the time wondering and thinking up stories and singing along to all the tunes that lived in his head. You see the eskimo loved nothing more than just to sing at home in his ark. It was here in his beautiful ark that he would figure out how to join the stories with the songs that floated around in his head.
Enchanted by the beautiful sound, three very curious animals decided to be brave and follow the noise.
This musical video is very sensitive, delicate and well drawn.
The humans beings are dead, sad and blighted creatures. How can't you think about your life?
