about

Kabaal klankbaan Pretoria, South Africa

Kabaal klankbaan is Gauteng-based musician Floris Groenewald’s folk-rock music project. “It’s not a stage name,” says Floris, “but a band, of which I’m the only permanent member.” They play acoustic, alternative folk-rock, which varies from indie-pop songs, folky dystopian love songs, bluesy rock & roll, to songs about robots and video games. ... more

Track Name: This Song Was Never Meant To Be Released
i gave you an eels bootleg
the night i first invited you out
you said you might already have it
but i thought to myself, “I doubt it”

i couldn’t wait for you to get back to me
i couldn’t wait for you to let me know

but you never did

i gave you a mix cd
full of happy songs to cheer you up
‘cause everyone could use some comfort
and i thought some daisies would help

i couldn’t wait for you to get back to me
i couldn’t wait for you to let me know

and i told you you’re beautiful to me, but you disagreed
and i told you how happy you make me, but you disagreed
i was having tea with hitler as i poured you another cup
this girl has nothing inside, and it’s about to erupt

i couldn’t wait for you to get back to me
i couldn’t wait for you to let me know

but you never did
Track Name: Tonight
my tears don’t spell your name
your silence won’t drive me insane
your smile makes the whole world right
the first streetlamp in the dead of night

your sound has yet to leave my heart
even though we are already apart
your smile makes the whole world right
the first streetlamp in the dead of night

who will smile for me tonight?

my tears don’t spell your name
your silence won’t drive me insane
your smile makes the whole world right
the first streetlamp in the dead of night

who will smile for me tonight?
Track Name: Kabaal (klankbaan) feat. Shotgun Tori - I Wish I Could Give You Forever (feat. Shotgun Tori)
i wish i could give you forever
but when will forever end?
i hoped i could be your lover
but i guess i’ll have to settle for your friend

why won’t you give me what i want?

i wish i could give you forever
but will you give me something too?
i don’t know what to ask for
but i put my trust in you

why won’t you give me what i want?

i wish i could give you forever
but will you spend it with me?
i wish i could open your eyes
but will you tell me what you see?

why won’t you give me what i want?
or don’t you want the same thing too?
Track Name: Electric Phone Calls (feat. Fi Smit)
your face is just a click away
your voice is just a phone call far
you speak so softly and so kind
but i cannot hear where you are
i miss the scent of your breath when you speak
i miss your presence

your late night text message
makes me realise i’m not so alone
but all you are at that moment
is a bunch of letters on my phone
i miss your bad pronounciation; i miss your phone calls

[scat section]

i said “your words aren’t clear;
you better spit out your gum!”

[FI leaves a voicemail message]

and when i finally get back home,
i’m lucky that you’re still here
and all i need when i see you
is your whispers in my ear
and suddenly, i miss the longing...
i miss your phone calls
Track Name: Last song kills audience: Not Tonight, Josephine
not tonight, josephine
i’m tired from the battles in my head, josephine
can’t we just go quietly to bed, josephine
josephine, josephine, josephine

i’ve had enough, josephine
of tryin’ to be the man you want from me, josephine
frightened of what i’d truly be, josephine
josephine, josephine, josephine

let me just go elsewhere
close my eyes and slip away tonight
waiting till a voice says, “it’s alright”
but for tonight, just for one night,
not your voice, sweet josephine

i’m on your side, josephine
there’s no-one’s side on which i’d rather be, josephine
just understand this and bear with me, josephine
josephine, josephine, josephine

you’re on my mind, josephine
but the head doesn’t understand the heart, josephine
tryin’ to explain, but where to even start, josephine
josephine, josephine, josephine

let me just go elsewhere
close my eyes and slip away tonight
waiting till a voice says, “it’s alright”
but for tonight, just for one night,
not your voice, sweet josephine

not tonight, josephine
i trust your promises way too much, josephine
your soothing words and your loving touch
is just too much, josephine
josephine, josephine, josephine, josephine
