Melbourne duo Kllo are releasing their debut album ‘Backwater’ via Different Recordings next month, and we’ve got the first play of the new video for its latest preview, ‘Downfall’.
The clip sees the band’s Chloe Kaul travelling across the band’s home country in a pretty dramatic new visual for the synth-pop earworm.
“This clip is a gentle journey from the cold urbanscapes of Melbourne city to the golden hues of the sunny coast, Australia,” the band say of the video. “It follows Chloe through from a place which she must escape, to a nostalgic place of familiarity. We end in a burning sugar field, which is symbolic of those hostile feelings to be released.”
The video’s director, Freya Esders, says: “The Sunshine Coast represents this space for me, I wanted to visually explore the warmth and comfort that only a nostalgic environment can provide and how that sense of emotional isolation is represented in the surrounds.”
The band are set to play a handful of UK shows as part of a full European run later this year.
