MOS TOUR UPDATE: Kaleo – “The Handprint Tour”

6080057Kaleo, formed in 2012 are a rock band from Iceland. They were just named Apple Music’s “New Artist of The Week”. They have a unique mixture of rock, folk and indie- you may have heard one of their hits “Way Down We Go” . They have a wonderful energy about them and they really bring a different genre of music to the scene. They can vary from a garage rock sound, to a very soft-melodic indie tone. Their versatility really draws me to them. They just released their debut album A/B and it reached the iTunes top 10, in 19 countries- in 12 of them it even reached to Top 3! Since they have had such a big success with their most recent tour dates, selling out multiple venues- they have decided to extend the tour and add more stops along the way!!! Check out the tour dates, and listen to some Kaleo below! 

Here’s one of my favorite tracks from Kaleo, featured on their new album A/B!
