Follow @thisdishisveg on Twitter for chance to win One eskimO cd & shirt

One eskimO is a critically-acclaimed indie rock group hailing from London, England and fronted by singer-songwriter Kristian Leontiou with musicians Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Jamie Sefton (bass, horns) and Adam Falkner (drums). The band, who toured with Tori Amos in 2009, currently has the #1 adult alternative song, “Kandi.”

When the UK band made their U.S. television debut, they chose the Ellen show, performing their hit “Kandi”—the song that Los Angeles Times Magazine hails as a beautiful, aspirational track.”

After listening to the album in full, it’s easy to see why this group is gaining attention worldwide. The music is comfortable, addictive, and memorable. Be sure to catch the super-cute animated video for “Kandi” on the band’s website.

Fun fact: While touring in February, the band stopped in Akron, Ohio to have dinner at Chrissie Hynde's vegan restaurant Vegiterranean. According to a message posted on the One EskimO blog the meal “was awesome.”

Now you have a chance to win One eskimO's self-titled debut album which Billboard dubbed as "...catchy, ambient pop." Simply follow @thisdishisveg on Twitter and tweet the message:
