GRAMMY-nominated Elektra/Atlantic rock band, Kaleo, have recently shared a stunning, live acoustic performance of their fantastic song “I Want More.”

A video was dropped alongside the release where you can see frontman JJ Julius Son take lead with his acoustic guitar and his wonderfully, low toned vocals. The video is part of a series of videos which have been filmed in their native country, Iceland. “I Want More” was performed and filmed at Skálholt Cathedral, which is known to be one of the most historically significant sites in the country. He was also joined by a string ensemble to make the performance that little bit more special.

“I Want More” happens to be the lead single of their most recent album “Surface Sounds.” Back in February, Kaleo have been on their “Fight or Flight” tour, and have performed across thirty cities – with the majority of the audiences being sold out. They are still set to head back out on the road and travel around Europe as part of their tour, and they have also very recently announced North America dates. Information about tickets and new dates can be found here.

Whilst taking a short break between tour dates, Kaleo have been filming a series of live performance videos showcasing the spectacular landscapes of Iceland. Not only are they showing their viewers and fans what a stunning country Iceland is, but they are also showcasing their music in a unique and beautiful way. So far, they have performed  Backbone (Live at Breiðarmerkurjökull) from an Ice Cave, the country’s recent volcanic eruption in Skinny (Live from Fagradalsfjall Volcanic Eruption), and Triple A Top 6 single Break My Baby (Live from ÞRÍDRANGAR), recorded and filmed at the illustrious ÞRÍDRANGAR lighthouse, one of the most isolated places on earth, located atop a remote rock formation in the North Atlantic Ocean. It’s a series that is definitely worthy of a watch, even if it’s just to explore the beauty of Iceland from the comfort of your own home.

“I Want More (Live At Skalholt)” is now available to stream via all major streaming platforms, and you can keep up to date with Kaleo by following them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
