    If you like X Ambassadors, James Bay, or Hozier, then this new tune from Icelandic band Kaleo is going to be a little gift for your ears. Mixing rock and folk together, Kaleo produce a soulful yet delicate sound that will stick with you way after the song ends.

    Husky, almost hoarse vocals play a huge part in this song. The singer JJ Julius Son starts off singing the first verse, Oh father tell me / we get what we deserve, and follows with and way down we go. Later on, the song achieves a masterful build where the vocals end up tossing and turning in a bed of screams. Its dark, filled with emotion thats impossible to fake. Kaleo holds the true authenticity and honesty that other artists lack.
