Dystopian thriller.

Greek alternative pop pioneer, Leon of Athens, has a penchant for skyrocketing our imagination with the most unexpected music videos. Recruiting Director Yiannns Dimoltsas, he takes us into a dystopian world where certain humans are being used as guinea pigs of science. The video almost feels like watching a trailer for a sci-fi film – we see clips of Leon losing his sanity and running away from it all. The gorgeous choreographic interludes capture the humanity of the prisoners who have been objectified as experimental assets. Watch below:

“’Xenos’ was initially inspired by the genocide of indigenous peoples. The song refers to any oppressed group of people who are forced to leave their land. On a personal note, it also refers to the feeling of being a stranger to your own self,” explained Leon Of Athens.

The track is from Leon’s new album with the same title, which was released back in February 9th via Universal. Leon actually just started touring the UK today and will be hitting the US in March. Don’t be a stranger and go say hi:
