Join us for the Free At Noon at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, as Kaleo performs a live midday concert on Friday.



Kaleo have experienced a high level of success in their home country of Iceland, beginning with an appearance at the 2012 Iceland Airwaves Festival. After releasing the Bon Iver-esque single "All the Pretty Girls" in 2014, Kaleo relocated to Austin, Texas where they made waves at the annual SXSW Music Conference. This summer saw the release of the band's latest single "Way Down We Go," while "All the Pretty Girls" became a hit on Triple A radio. Their songs are dark and atmospheric, with elements of the aforementioned Bon Iver and singer-songwriter Hozier.

RSVP to reserve your spot for this week's Free at Noon in Philadelphia, or tune-in at 88.5FM and worldwide at XPN.org.
