Kllo: ‘Virtue’

image

Melbourne is producing some of the best artists we have been introduced to over the last couple of years and duo Kllo are no exception.

With their LP Backwater, out in October via Different Recordings, ‘Virtue‘ is the first single to be taken from the album.

The band say, “‘Virtue’ is about not knowing what you’ve got till it’s gone, whether that be a part of yourself or somebody else,” the pair say. “It’s the present moment of finally coming to that realisation.” 

There’s a more intricate soundscape here, one that lets Chloe Kaul’s exquisite vocal flourish freely. With it’s fortified funk rhythms and call back to when Garage wasn’t a novelty, this delivers a honed modern ballad that’s steeped in RnB glamour.

This has entered my “tracks of the year” list.
