After releasing the quietly devastating tracks "Maybe You" and “Julian” the deliciously melancholic Say Lou Lou release their debut single on Columbia Records, ‘Better In The Dark’, on 16th December. ‘Better in the Dark’ comes as a double A-side accompanied with a stunning b-side ‘Beloved’.
Say Lou Lou are 21 year old Swedish/Australian twin sisters Miranda and Elektra Kilbey and they are currently finishing off their self-written debut album which has been recorded in London, Sweden and Los Angeles. The album will be released early in 2014.
Self created and self imagined, Say Lou Lou have come to worldwide attention since their formation just eighteen months ago with the two fantastic songs and their attendant B-sides. NME said of “Maybe You, ‘On their haunting first single Miranda and Elektra cut deep with a wounded despondent ballad that takes pop’s penchant for the superficial and drowns it in a sea of sorrows’ whilst The Sunday Times called them ‘a red hot tip’. Meanwhile in the US they have been shot by Interview Magazine and V Magazine so far’. Released earlier this year as a b-side on the vinyl release to "Julian," another stunning track "Fool of Me" (recorded with Chet Faker) has been highlighted on Pitchfork, Idolator and MTV Buzzworthy as a potential breakout song for the duo.
In addition to the singles the band have created incredible imagery for each track with two videos by director Philippe Tempelman which have already chalked up nearly one million views in the past few months. As well as their own headline dates in the UK, Say Lou Lou have toured Europe and shared stages with the likes of Twin Shadow, Kindness, Ariel Pink and HURTS
Say Lou Lou – das sind die schwedisch-australischen Zwillingsschwestern Miranda und Elektra Kilbey. Der bittersüsse Pop ihrer Songs »Maybe You«, »Julian« und »Better In The Dark« begeisterte bereits Kritiker weltweit. Der Esquire nennt Say Lou Lous Musik »Electro noir pop«, die Elle beschreibt das Ganze als »Melancholie, zu der man tanzen kann«.
Say Lou Lous neuer Song »Everything We Touch« liefert zum melancholisch-eindringlichen Trademark-Sound eine übergrosse Hook –»Everything we touch turns to gold at night«. Say Lou Lou beenden gerade die Aufnahmen zu ihrem Debütalbum, das in den letzten Monaten in London, Schweden und Los Angeles entstanden ist und bei Four Music erscheinen wird. .
