The musical collaboration of Melbourne cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul generated considerable buzz worldwide with the release of their debut Cusp (2014), a pertinent name for an act with such promise. The latest taste of this promise is new single ‘Bolide’, a compelling track of substance and subtlety that’ll leave listeners longing for the pair’s new record. Within days of its release, ‘Bolide’ had been added to rotation on Triple J, and received numerous plays on BBC Radio 1.
Kllo’s music has already been routinely praised by critics and peers, with their ice-breaking first single ‘Make Me Wonder’ picked up by BBC Radio 1 and shared across the online community with reckless abandon. Follow up single ‘False Calls’ was premiered on Triple J’s 2014 (with Richard Kingsmill), before a third single “Under Lie” saw them ranked as Hypemachine’s #2 “Most Blogged Artist”. The Cusp EP then reached a peak of #5 on the iTunes Australia Electronic Charts, and saw the likes of Spotify and Elle Magazine rank them as “Artists to watch in 2015”.
2016 is shaping up to be a massive year for Kllo ammasing over one million plays on Spotify for their first single ‘Bolide’ off their upcoming EP on Ghostly International (US), PIAS/Different Recordings (UK, EU & Japan) and Good Manners Records (ROW).
