hmv's Next Big Thing... #76 Kaleo

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Icelandic rockers Kaleo...


Who Are They?

Formed in 2012, Kaleo haven't had much success outside of their native Iceland, but they're going places now. After relocating to Austin, Texas and signing to Atlantic Records, they've been gigging steadily and have enjoyed some success with single 'Way Down We Go', which has featured at a key moment in TV show Blindspot, on the FIFA 16 soundtrack, in the season 5 finale of Suits and on the trailer for Orange Is The New Black.


Who Do They Sound Like?

This is big, bombastic pop rock, think Coldplay, Snow Patrol, The Lumineers, basically all the choruses all the time. 


Why Should I Be Excited?

Their album is sing-a-long central and should be enjoyed as such. 


Can I Hear Something?

You can preview and purchase their debut album A/B on the right-hand side of the page.
