In the south-west of Iceland a few guys got together in 2012 to form a band. The five guys have released a couple of albums, Kaleo and A/B, and EP, Glasshouss. They have sold over 900,ooo albums. Pretty good for a band from such a small country. Most of their notoriety is due to their live shows and their hit single, “Way Down We Go”, which reached the top of the Billboard Alternative Chart in 2016.
Success continued in 2017 when the band got a Grammy nomination in the Best Rock Performance category for the song “No Good”. With all this success the band moved their home base to Austin, Texas. This led to the band making several appearances on American television on shows like Late Night with Seth Meyers, Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Their songs have also been featured on television shows like Blindspot, Suits, Grey’s Anatomy, Riverdale, and Orange is the New Black. The band’s sound is chock full of influences from the folk and blues genres.
