Melbourne cousins Kllo are back with details of their new album Maybe We Could, and have shared the lead single "Still Here".
The track is inspired by suffocating relationships, and lands with a video directed by Matt Sav, which is shot on 16mm. Kllo say, "The video uses visual metaphors to symbolise the struggle and perseverance through relationships by being trapped in plastic, sinking in water etc."
Sav adds, "I wanted the video to be a poetic depiction of two people staying in a relationship beyond its logical end. I explored the interplay between love, obsession, imagined futures, lived pasts and the insanity that can be found in between. In our relationships, especially without good definitions around what love really means to us, we find the edges of freedom and responsibility blurring."
Kllo's Maybe We Could album will be their first since 2017's Backwater.
"In the past, we’ve tried to speed things up and push away from that," explains Kaul. "But now we’re sitting where it feels comfortable to us. Comfortable but also daring, because we know it’s not as polished in certain ways. We’re doing us, we’re doing Kllo. We’re a bit older now. We aren’t compromising as much on this album. It's a little bit classier and more tasteful this time around."
