The Who: Kaleo (Austin, TX by way of Iceland)
The What: With a sound that is a dynamic blending of the earthiest aspects of folk, rock, country and blues, Kaleo (JJ Julius Son, vox, guitar; David Antonsson, drums; Daniel Kristjansson, bass; Rubin Pollock, guitar) were a national musical treasure back home in Iceland. Then that sound made them one of the most talked about bands after making their South By Southwest debut in 2015. Their heady single “Way Down We Go” gets presented through the intuitive lens-eye of director Shaun Silva: the result being as warm-blooded and soulfully affecting as the song, itself.
The Where: Kaleo’s Atlantic Records full-length debut, A/B, drops on June 10th, but in the meantime keep up with the music, news and tour info (headline, support and festival dates) via their official website, Facebook page and at @OfficialKaleo on Twitter.
