Back in September of last year Saint Lou Lou – as was their moniker back then – caused our jaws to fall open when they unveiled debut single ‘Maybe You’, which pitched them as a fascinating hybrid of Washed Out and Lana Del Rey.
Now comes single number two from sisters Elektra and Miranda Kilbey, the more upbeat, vibey ‘Julian’. It’s another fantastic slice of icy synth-pop.
“I think there’s a sense of melancholy mixed with hope,” Miranda told DIY. “So in one way, it’s an adolescent sound. We feel like it can reach out to different states of mind – the music is very open to interpretation.”
