2017 brought 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 Lam's 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 found Kllo with more room to breathe and sync their rhythms with emotions. Kaul's smoky voice emanates with assurance and leisure. Lam's production invents brooding, steely undercurrents hemmed with charming crescendos. Their third release – and their most realised work to date – 'Backwater' celebrates the ephemeral and the enduring changes in emotion, the downfalls and the dissolves.
