Paragraph about Kaleo recording their newest music video.
Kaleos new music video in Skálholt church - Behind the Scenes
In March 2021 Jökull Júlíusson the singer of Kaleo came with a group of musicians and a film crew to make a live performance music video in Skálholt Church in South Iceland. The song "I want more", a new and slower verision by Kaleo was performed live in Skálholt church. Singer Jökull playing his guitar while an orchestra of violins and cellos formed a half circle around him. The video is particularly beautiful with the setting of the altar and the altarpiece in Skálholt church.
The live recording was made in March 2021 in Skálholt Cathedral. Jökull had arrived with Rough Cult production company to check out the area and the facilities a few weeks prior. They showed up on a misty Thursday morning with the crew and musicians to make the music video to the beautiful song "I want more".
They spent the day there, playing the song over and over again, each time just as perfect, as the camera hovered around them. One does not know what to expect when a rock band wants to make a music video inside a cathedral, but the whole process was very pleasant. Everyone was respectful and thankful and the work went smoothly, as could be expected from such professionals.
The acoustics in Skálholt Cathedral is the best in Iceland so it is no wonder that Kaleo chose and the church is a very popular place to have concerts and record music.
We feel very blessed and are thankful that Jökull and Kaleo decided to use Skálholt Cathedral as a setting for their life performance of the song "I want more".
