Kllo’s Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul are masters of juxtaposition, infusing their bubbling electro-pop beats with mellow R&B vocals and a churning, ever-present sense of yearning. Fittingly, they named their album after the bodies of water that “rest beyond a current’s reach,” those seen as “stagnant and turbid.” Backwater, the duo’s debut full length, is a collection of songs written while the cousins “waded in figurative backwater,” experiencing the excitement of a world tour but also while homesick for their hometown of Melbourne. At their best, the songs on Backwater capture the mixed feelings Lam and Kaul experienced while writing them, artfully weaving heartache through intrepid pop hooks. However, despite their claims that this is their most adult music yet, the songs don’t feel like they have matured much from the disjointed lyrics and pleasant-but-homogeneous electronic beats of their last EP, Well Worn.
