fter the release of their commanding debut EP, Cusp, last year, Kllo (formerly Klo) are putting the finishing touches on new material that expands the borders of their sound while staying rooted in subtle, bewitching pop melodies.
A collaboration between Melbourne cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul, Kllo have already garnered praise from critics and peers. Their warm, woozy first single, Make Me Wonder, was picked up by BBC Radio 1, and the duo were named Artists to watch in 2015 by Spotify and Elle Magazine.
Their live-show has also developed considerably since their debut headline
show less just over a year ago. After a string of festival performances (Bigsound, Splendour in the Grass, Melbourne Music Week and Dark Mofo among others), they have debuted new music earlier this year opening for UK acts SOHN and Maribou State on their Australian tours.
Things then ramped up in May-June, as the guys spent a month on the road in Europe. Playing at the Great Escape and Liverpool Sound City festivals (as well as stand-alone shows in the UK), they finished off the tour with a crowded, sunset performance at Primavera Sound in Barcelona.
