2017 brings Kllo's full-length debut, Backwater, a refined, coming-of-age account. Songs were written partially on the road and developed back in Melbourne at Lams bungalow, a haven that harbours creative spontaneity and catharsis. The album depicts inner adjustment to outer change: being far from home, treading through perpetual uncharted territory while yearning for the comforts of the familiar.
The LP format finds Kllo with more room to breathe and sync their rhythms with emotions. Kaul's smoky voice emanates with assurance and leisure. Lams production invents brooding, steely undercurrents hemmed with charming crescendos. Their second release – and their most realised work to date – Backwater celebrates the ephemeral and the enduring changes in emotion, the downfalls and the dissolves.
