Kllo unveil a moving, stripped-back piano ballad, Nylon

The duo's debut album Backwater is out October 20, and comes with a whole heap of tour dates.

When it comes to current Australian electronic acts, there are none quite as terrifyingly talented as Kllo. The Melbourne two-piece have been the source of some of Australia's most spectacular singles, among them being this year's upbeat returning single Virtue - the first from their debut album. Nylon is the latest track to be released from the album, and in comparison to Virtue and much of their other previous work, it's a much more refined and delicate affair. Nylon puts Chloe Kaul's vocals on the centre stage, allowing them to float over the haunting, piano-soaked production gracefully. It's quite a sombre and moving single, and one which showcases Kllo's incredible songwriting talent in a way which doesn't feel overwhelmingly messy or complicated. It's a simple, emotionally-charged Australian piano ballad at its best. "Nylon is the most minimal track off the album," Kllo says on the single. "It was originally a production-driven UK-inspired pop song, but as we progressed with it, we stripped it back more and more to eventually end up with a piano ballad. It is about disorientation when growing older, but with a mind still too young to take on the serious commitments of what's in front of you - and how suffocating it can be to try and hold yourself up to those expectations."

Nylon will feature on Kllo's debut album Blackwater, which will arrive on October 20. Pre-order it HERE. Additionally, Kllo will be touring the LP with a whole heap of solo shows this December, and as a part of the just-announced Laneway Festival in all stops bar Fremantle. Check out the list of their solo dates below.
