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 embarked on their most recent European tour this month, in support of Foals, and return with their own headline show in London at Concrete on 13th November 2013.
Tickets for their London show are available now.
Better in the Dark is available as a bundle from 25th November on iTunes.
