"Way Down We Go" by Kaleo is definitely my latest obsession. It doesn't hurt that the band is from Iceland (a.k.a. my primary obsession, but we'll get to that in a bit.)
Kaleo first made an impression at Iceland Airwaves in 2012 (think Iceland version of woodstock), with a cover of an Icelandic song, "Vor í Vaglaskógi" The Reykjavik Grapevine reports that the song was originally written by beloved Iceland radio host, Jónas Jónasson, who used lyrics from a poem by Kristján frá Djúpalæk, about a spring night shared by two lovers in Vaglaskógur forest in Northern Iceland. The vocals are performed by another Iceland darling, Vilhjálmur Vilhjálmsson.
