Kabaal (klankbaan) is a solo folk-rock act from Pretoria by Floris Groenewald. We’re lucky enough to be getting his latest song, This town is for lovers, as a free download for Christmas. We love the song and you should too.
Floris Groenewald explains the meaning behind This town is for lovers: “This town is for lovers is a dystopian song about the search for freedom and escape from whatever entraps us – whether it be love, authority, class, or geographical limits.”
This town is for lovers drew some influence from folk music, dystopian fiction and musicians/bands like The Cure, Muse, Admiral Freebee, No Dancing!, Tom Waits and Violent Femmes.
