KLLO

KLLO reveals 'INSOMNIA' latest cut from forthcoming album MAYBE WE COULD, out July 17 ON BELIEVE (UK) & GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL (US)

Kllo - electronic pop duo of Melbourne cousins Chloe Kaul and Simon Lam - will release their new album, Maybe We Could, on July 17th via Believe (UK) and Ghostly International (US). Today, they share the new single, ‘Insomnia,’ which simmers in a similar melancholy to previous single ‘Still Here’. ‘Insomnia’ skitters with steely beats and tender keys. It’s one of the few songs written from separate locations when both artists were in North America independently, and its feeling reflects a sense of jet-lagged joy and displacement, the high highs, low lows as one line goes.


It's one of our favourites off the album and is heavily influenced by our time in North America

says Kllo.

The song is about laying in bed fantasizing that you'll give your all to something and that someone else will too, but knowing deep down

it will never happen.

The moment of the night where you can't switch off and differentiate your truth from your imagination."


Following the release of their adored full-length debut Backwater, two years of global touring including a sold-out show at London’s Studio 9294, a handful of singles, and a near-breakup, Kaul and Lam both took time away from Kllo to make solo work.


The experiences served as a reset, giving them space to learn separately, and, ultimately, to appreciate what they have together. Largely written and recorded upon their return, 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. Lam sums it up,

“It’s like the album started off with 'maybe' and ended with 'definitely.’”
