Displaced twin sisters Elektra and Miranda Kilbey, who perform as the dream-pop duo Say Lou Lou, have channeled a lifetime lived between the permafrost of Sweden and the beaches of Australia into another single and accompanying music video, this time titled Better in the Dark.
The clip is a fittingly noir visual accompaniment to the dark-wave majesty of the track. It’s such splendour, which the girls marry with ear-bug hooks, that has seen Say Lou Lou not only tipped to be 2014’s hottest rising stars, but also make the cut for the BBC Sound Of 2014 nominees longlist.
The list has Say Lou Lou amongst the likes of BANKS, FKA Twigs, and Chlöe Howl, while Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft recently praised the sisterly duo in an interview with Gigwise. The singer labeled the pair “a very special entity” and described them as “just fantastic.”
