  • Kllo – an electronic collaboration that takes in garage and cold edged pop influences - is the work of Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam.

    They waded in figurative backwater for much of 2016 amid an extensive world tour that took in an impressive show at Sneaks. These were exciting times; the duo’s Well Worn EP furthered the promise of 2014 EP Cusp, receiving millions of streams and landing Kllo on festival stages as well as Artists-to-Watch lists. Nonetheless, the stretch kept them far from home, isolated and vulnerable, treading through perpetual uncharted territory while yearning for the comforts of the familiar.

    As a result, Kllo’s full-length debut depicts inner adjustment to outer change. Songs were written partially on the road and developed back at Lam’s bungalow, a haven that harbours creative spontaneity and catharsis.

    “It’s the first time we hadn’t felt like kids anymore,” says Kaul. “We were really able to dive in deeper and bring out a lot more of us into the music.”
