Melbourne, Australia cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam, aka Kllo, release their debut album 'Backwater' on October 20 via the Ghostly label.
Check out the duo's latest single from it, 'Nylon'. Showing a slightly different direction, the track sees them take a stripped back approach, with Chloe's gorgeous vocals come to the fore, given plenty of space to develop and build over Simon's clever production.
"'Nylon is the most minimal track off the album," Kllo say of the song. 'It was originally a production driven uk-inspired pop song but as we progressed with it, we stripped it back more and more to eventually end up with a piano ballad. It is about disorientation when growing older, but with a mind still too young to take on the serious commitments of what's in front of you - and how suffocating it can be to try and hold yourself up to those expectation."
