KLLO SHARES VIDEO FOR DOWNFALL

KLLO SHARES VIDEO FOR DOWNFALL

Melbourne electronic duo Kllo (Chloe Kaul & Simon Lam) have shared the brand new video for the blissfully downtempo ‘Downfall’, the opening track from their much anticipated soon to be released debut album Backwater. Directed by Freya Esders, it traces Kaul taking a gradual sun-kissed journey from the cold urban climes of the Victorian metropolis to the golden cane fields of Queensland. Shot on KODAK eckachrome and exquisitely coloured by Ciara Gallogly at Method Studios, according to Esders it centres on an exploration of the alternating need for isolation, familiarity, warmth, comfort and nostalgia.

The cane fires are a pungent part of my childhood memory. I recall afternoons where sickly sweet air would spill from a fast and brilliant blaze. Always at dusk, flames melting into sunsets. Using film for the project helped solidify what I’d hoped to evoke, a saturated, vibrant memory and in the clip, a finale about letting go and moving forward.”

Backwater follows up their two impressive EP’s Well Worn and Cusp and in addition to ‘Downfall’ contains the already released tracks, the pulsating two step of ‘Virtue’ and the stripped back ‘Nylon’. Watch the aforementioned video below and if you haven’t yet checked out the other two singles, they are there too. The album is out October 20 on Good Manners (AUS/NZ), Ghostly International (US/CAN) & Different Recordings (EUR/JPN). Pre-order the vinyl according to where you are in the world here, here & here respectively. World tour dates after the music.
