Melbourne-based duo Kllo is back with their first offering since 2017, this time sharing their poignant track 'Back To You'. Along with releasing the track, the duo featuring cousins Simon Lam and Chloe Kaul, is currently working towards an album, which is expected to be released sometime next year.

On 'Back To You', the duo present a sound that's reminiscent of early 2000s-inspired R&B. According to Lam in a statement, they set out to create the track with an 'old-school approach', including using "cassettes for the ad-libs and an old sampler for the main riff." After spending time in Los Angeles, the duo reflected on the sounds that inspired them when they were growing up.

Not only can you feel the emotional impact of 'Back To You' sonically, but it's also something you can feel brimming in the lyrics, especially with words such as, "It's personal / And I only just felt the impact / Was it from your head or mine."
