Green romance

Every year we listen to stories of bizarre couples that leaves us with they-are-not-gonna-last face. However, Leon Of Athens takes it to another level with his new video “Utopia” – an intense love story of a man and…his plant. Literally. Directed by Gregory Rentis and written by Oscar-nominated screenwriter Efthimis Filippou, “Utopia” depicts a world where humans share romantic relationships with plants. It is surrealistic and offbeat, but showcases our desire for perfect love where we don’t have to deal with emotional drama and can easily replace our partners. Watch below:

“Utopia” is from Leon Of Athens’ upcoming record Xenos, which will be out on February 9th. He will start touring next month as well, so go see him live:
