Kllo is an electronic pop collaboration between Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam.
Kllo first emerged with a sound beyond their years; fully formed, fusing elements of R&B, UK garage, and 2-step. Well-versed students of artists like James Blake, Lauryn Hill, and The xx, the duo extend an amalgamation of established pop elements with modern sensibilities and wide-eyed sincerity.
Kaul’s smoky voice emanates with assurance and leisure. Lam’s production invents brooding, steely undercurrents hemmed with charming crescendos.
They use these warm-cool dynamics to convey strain; see the bubbling arpeggiated synth lines of the closure-seeking “Last Yearn” or the solace afforded by the tender piano ballad, “Nylon” to experience the bewitching confluences.
