The musical collaboration of Melbourne cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul, Kllo generated considerable buzz worldwide with the release of their debut Cusp (2014).
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, before a third single “Under Lie” saw them ranked as Hypemachine’s #2 “Most Blogged A rtist”. 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 highly.
‘a pleasant and fluid pop tune that blurs lines between R&B and twostep, with Lam’s production soaring subtly ben eath Kaul’s gossamer vocals.’ Pitchfork
‘As retrogarage exponents go, it’s as exquisite as early Aluna George, with extra experimental flourishes to prov e their underground credentials.’ The Guardian (New Band of the Week)
