“No Good” – by Kaleo

 

Every story has two sides, and that adage is certainly true for Kaleo, the four-piece band from Iceland who now call the US home. Call it a split upbringing: the isolated heritage that results from coming of age in Iceland has paired with the fresh inspiration of moving to America, and the band has built a sound to match the disparate landscapes. A gorgeous and raucous blend of rock, folk and blues, Kaleo’s debut LP embodies that very spirit of duality: titled A/B, the album showcases the band’s multi-layered dynamics and ability to play different genres with equal skill.

Best friends since attending elementary school outside of Reykjavik, bandleader JJ Julius Son, drummer David Antonsson, and bassist Daniel Kristjansson began playing together at the age of 17 before adding guitarist Rubin Pollock to the mix in 2012. They named the band Kaleo, which means “the sound” in Hawaiian, and started their career in with a handful of well-received shows at the 2012 Iceland Airwaves music festival. The band signed to Elektra/Atlantic and moved to the States in early 2015, choosing Austin as their new base.

Lyrics

Can’t fight the temptation
When you get the vibration
Won’t do you no good
It won’t do you no good

You better start running
When you hear the man coming
Won’t do you no good
It won’t do you no good

No, we don’t mind
If you don’t mind
Hell, I never mind!

Now let the moment break you
Let the feeling come take you
Won’t do you no good
It won’t do you no good

And you know I got feelings
Won’t you hit me right, you know you might as well
Won’t do you no good
Said it won’t do you no good

And I said kiss your baby goodbye
Come on, love, it’s alright!
Heaven knows they wanna break you apart, yeah

Kiss your baby goodbye
Come on, love, it’s alright!
You never know unless you give it a try
Oh baby

‘Said do you no good
Yeah!

Can’t fight the temptation
When you get the vibration
Won’t do you no good
Won’t do you no good

And you can tell I got feelings
You try to shake it off, try it, oh, you won’t
You won’t, do you no good
Today won’t do you no good

And I said kiss your baby goodbye
Come on, love, it’s alright
Heaven knows they wanna break you apart, yeah

Kiss your baby goodbye
Come on, love, it’s alright
You never know unless you give it a try, oh yeah!

Yeah, yeah!
Whoa, yeah!
No, no, baby
Yeah!
Whoa yeah!
Want my sweet baby
Whoa, you’re no good babe
Yeah!
I said yeah
One day yeah, baby!
Ah yeah
Woo!
Oh, yeah!
