Consider, for instance, what is arguably the band's most famous music video, a live take of their track \"Save Yourself\" shot on location at Fjallsárlón glacial lagoon, on the south side of Vatnajökull National Park.
Surrounded by the dramatic and other-worldly nature of their native country, the music video is one of the best examples of Kaleo's Nordic interpretation of a musical style most widely associated with the swampy marshlands and barren deserts of North America. Of the experience, JJ Julius Son said, \"I think because of the soft and melodic nature of this song, it fits perfectly with the beautiful, serene setting of the glacier lagoon\".
Of course, Kaleo had experimented with blending their musical output with the majesty of Iceland's nature before, having shot a live take of \"Way Down We Go\" inside of Thrihnukagigur volcano. Surrounded by the stunning, colourful imprints blasted into the caldera's interior rock faces, this video, once again, proves the sincere pride that Kaleo feels about their homeland.
Kristy Gibson, the VP of film, television and video game licensing for Atlantic Records, said she noticed a surge of interest in Kaleo from music supervisors ahead of the release of the band's sophomore album, A/B, in June 2016. Though the record company had been pushing a different single, it was \"Way Down We Go\" that struck a chord, especially after Orange Is the New Black used the song in its Season 4 trailer, which dropped in May 2016. The increased exposure propelled \"Way Down We Go\" to No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative chart in August 2016, and sent sales and streaming numbers skyrocketing.
\"The song worked for us in multiple ways,\" says Supergirl music supervisor Season Kent. \"It seemed realistic to be playing in the bar, the pain and angst in his voice helps the down and out moment in the top of the scene, and also the bluesy electric guitar bridge gives this sexy vibe between Alex and Maggie. It's a moment between the two of them, Alex opening up and being vulnerable.\"
Teen Wolf music supervisor Laura Webb opted to use a stripped-down, acoustic version of the song in Episode 9 of Season 6, \"Memory Found,\" as Scott (Tyler Posey) recalls memories of his best friend Stiles (Dylan O'Brien), who's been erased from reality by the season's Big Bad.
Iceland is known to be a shooting spot for famous movies, but this beautiful country has also been featured in popular music videos. Some of them, like Justin Bieber's video, became so popular that places in Iceland are nicknamed after them... 59ce067264
