Father tell me, we get what we deserve.
Oh we get what we deserve.
And way down we go…

I am on vacation, so I am going to do my best to make this short and sweet.
Kaleo – A / B. First thoughts on the band is that they were more alternative with a little bit of rock from their first few singles. Listened to the full album. Found out they are more of a rock and roll with a bit of blues along with their alternative tendencies. I lean more towards the alternative songs like Way Down We Go, All the Pretty Girls, and I Can’t Go On Without You; however, I think part of that is preference. For instance, Hot Blood is dope and fits that more rock & roll feel. Guitar solos for days.
The main thing about Kaleo is they have great vocals and are tight and crisp instrumentally. They like to have fun. And although for the most part I would say I gravitate to deeper albums lyrically (I would not call this shallow either), this will do just fine for jamming out this summer.
Favorite Songs: Way Down We Go, Hot Blood, All the Pretty Girls, Vor í Vaglaskógi, I Can’t Go On Without You
Top 10 Potential: I don’t think so, but maybe.
