Since the release of their gold-certified breakthrough album, 2016’s A/B, Icelandic rock band KALEO — led by frontman/songwriter JJ Julius Son — has taken their music around the world. The album spawned three hit singles: the Grammy-nominated No Good, the gold-selling All The Pretty Girls, and the chart-topping, 2x Platinum-certified Way Down We Go which was used in over two dozen television shows from Grey’s Anatomy to Riverdale, leading the No. 1 single to top The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Songs chart.
After amassing over 1 billion global streams, 39 international certifications, and countless sold-out headline shows spanning from London to Moscow, KALEO has proven to be a worldwide phenomenon. Known for their electrifying live performances, KALEO completely sold out their first U.S. headline tour and was a standout at Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo and recently were hand-picked to open stadium dates for the Rolling Stones.
KALEO's sophomore album Surface Sounds was released on April 23, 2021 and features lead singles I Want More, and Break My Baby as well as Alter Ego, Backbone, Skinny and Hey Gringo.
