Kaleo on an iceberg
First they film a ‘hot’ video at the bottom of a volcano, and now Kaleo has gone to an iceberg for the next video.
The guys premiered the video for their song “Save Yourself.” Filmed in the band’s native Iceland, the visual shows the rockers standing and performing on an actual iceberg. None of the Kaleo members are wearing gloves, by the way. You can watch the presumably chilly “Save Yourself” video below.
“I think because of the soft and melodic nature of this song it fit perfectly with the beautiful, serene setting of the glacier lagoon,” frontman JJ Julius Son tells The Wall Street Journal.
As one might suspect, filming a music video on an iceberg isn’t the easiest of tasks. For one, Kaleo had to hook their gear up to two generators on nearby boats by running power lines underwater. The band also was supposed to be accompanied by a string section, but rain forced them to drop out. Oh, and the iceberg was moving, too.
“It was by far the most challenging video we’ve made thus far,” says Julius Son. Considering that Kaleo previously filmed a video for their single “Way Down We Go” inside a volcano, that’s saying a lot.”Save Yourself” appears on Kaleo’s U.S. debut album, A/B.
The band is currently on a headlining tour in support of A/B, and they’ll be opening select dates on The Lumineers’ arena next year.
