Kllo, is the electronic pop duo of Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam. The duo have shared a visualizer to stream their new album, Maybe We Could, which is now available via Ghostly International. The full-length was written and recorded after a near break-up and time away for solo work, Maybe We Could signals a new start for Kllo. Ten tracks pairing the rhythms of dance music to emotive chords and melodies; revealing two artists at their strongest yet most vulnerable, operating as their truest selves, honest with each other and their craft. Songs on Maybe We Could grapple with familiar dynamics: unrequited love, doubts, desires, and decisions. Musically, the album finds Kllo following their impulses, embracing a more subdued and nuanced tone.
Maybe We Could mirrors the progression and growth of the two artists behind a singular project. The title references a phrase they repeat often when recording. A collective strategy towards facing uncertainty, taking chances, and making choices. Ones that become more deliberate as time rolls on. “We chose the title ‘Maybe We could’ because we were unsure if there was even going to be this record, but with some time apart, it became clear how important it was for us to do, regardless of the uncertainty,” says Kllo. “The ten tracks are a pairing of rhythmic dance music to emotive chords and melodies. It’s the most honest music we’ve done to date. An expression of our truest selves and what we went through over the last few years.”
