Detroit’s very own Mo Pop Music Festival added two new artists, Kaleo and Bishop to its already fantastic 2016 lineup.

Kaleo is an indie pop band that hails from the great country of Iceland. After just performing a slew of shows at SXSW this past weekend, they are finally receiving the buzz that they are worthy of. Watch this video of the band playing their radio-hit “Way Down We Go” live inside a freckin’ volcano. Only in Iceland, people.

London-born singer Bishop is not as established at Kaleo, but she d efinitely has the chops to rise up festival bills as the years go on. Her sound is a shmorgishborg of styles: folky vocals layered on funky trap music beats. A star on the rise that you won’t want to miss.
