Icelandic band Kaleo announce they will perform a second show at The Olympia Theatre due to popular demand, with special guests Judah & the lion, 7th November, also performing 6th November.
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster.ie and outlets now.
Kaleo will tour later this year supporting their latest album A/B, a gorgeous and raucous blend of rock, folk and blues, Kaleo’s debut LP embodies that very spirit of duality: titled A/B, the album showcases the band’s multi- layered dynamics and ability to play different genres with equal skill.
A/B was primarily produced and recorded with King, the esteemed production icon whose past work with talented artists as varied as Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Buddy Guy, James Bay, and Of Monsters and Men helped Kaleo showcase both their louder and softer sides.
They will tour with Nashville’s Judah & The Lion, listening to every type of music that came their way. They loved it all: the twang of folk, the beat of hip-hop, the drive of rock & roll, the punch of pop. Later, after college brought all four musicians to Tennessee, it only made sense to combine those different backgrounds — and different sounds — together.
With their second full-length album, Folk Hop N Roll, the guys shine a light on the place where their influences overlap. It’s a wide-ranging sound, with fuzz bass, hip-hop percussion, distorted banjo riffs, and super-sized melodies all stirred into the same mixing pot.
“There’s no boundaries,” says frontman Judah Akers, who shares the band’s lineup with drum- mer Spencer Cross, mandolin player Brian Macdonald, and banjo wiz Nate Zuercher. “We wanted to make something raw, something with attitude. We all grew up loving these hip-hop beats, so why not make an album that has the grit of Run DMC or Beastie Boys, along with all the folk instruments that we play?”
