Kllo – Backwater

Tuesday 07th, November 2017 / 14:54
By Jamie McNamara

Kllo
Backwater
Ghostly International

Kllo is the electronic pop project of Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam. Backwater, their debut album for esteemed electronic music label Ghostly International is an immaculately produced ode to UK Garage and 2 Step.  

Kaul’s voice is a highlight across the album’s 12 tracks, lending an airy touch to Lam’s aqueous productions. Synth-heavy songs like “Last Yearn” steal the show, combining Jamie XX-indebted jackin’ drum productions with washed out synths and Kaul’s breathy tenor.  

Elsewhere, tracks like “Downfall” and “Virtue” are radio-ready anthems, combining Craig David and Rhye into one cohesive sound. It can feel like Kaul and Lam focus more on the “vibe” than the actual music in the latter half of the album, but it’s hardly enough to call Backwater anything less than a success.
