Kllo explore emotional jet-lag with late-night rumination “Insomnia”

“Insomnia” is taken from Kllo‘s upcoming sophomore album, Maybe We Could, out July 17.

Melbourne duo Kllo (Chloe Kaul + Simon Lam) recently announced the release of their sophomore album with uplifting single “Still Here“. On the new offering, “Insomnia,” they opt this time for intimate R&B textures and explore emotional jet-lag, when two persons are experiencing the same relationship with different feelings. This notion of romantic distance was actually inspired by the creative process of the track which was written from separate locations, when the two cousins were in North America independently.

“It’s one of our favourites off the album and is heavily influenced by our time in North America,” they explained. “The song is about laying in bed fantasising that you’ll give your all to something and that someone else will too, but knowing deep down it will never happen. The moment of the night where you can’t switch off and differentiate your truth from your imagination.”
