Kllo, Melbourne singer Chloe Kaul’s electronic pop duo with Band To Watch alum Nearly Oratorio’s Simon Lam, are returning next month with the follow-up to their 2017 debut Backwater. We’ve already heard the upcoming Maybe We Could’s lead single “Still Here,” and now they’re sharing “Somehow,” which also tempers its melancholy with a skittering dance beat. As Kllo explain in a statement:
“Somehow” is one of the dancier tracks on the album and one of the more difficult ones to finish. This song is probably the closest to “Virtue” both musically and the way in which it unfolded. It went through many different incarnations before arriving at its final state. Although gruelling at times, we consider this process to be a positive thing. The harder songs to finish are usually the ones people connect with most. It’s just a matter of simplifying the ideas once we’ve over worked them.
Listen and watch the grainy video, shot during the duo’s first trip to Russia on tour late last year, below.
