Say Lou Lou – Nothing But A Heartbeat

Say Lou Lou

To celebrate the release of Say Lou Lou‘s debut album, ‘Lucid Dreaming’, the sisters have revealed a short film encapsulating the essence of the album in its entirety.

The film, set to the band’s single ‘Nothing But A Heartbeat’, was devised by the band and directed by Joanna Nordahl (Lune, Ji Nilsson). Alongside the album body of work, inspiration has been sought from Lars Von Trier’s ‘Melancholia’, Hans Zimmer and ‘On Being Ill’ by Virginia Woolf while drawing parallels to religious ideology and exploration of mental sanity. The band appear in a dream-like state, surrealistic and boundless with abstract thoughts running free.

The band explain the idea; ”Dreams are a way for human minds to digest their memories, and this film is sort of a digestion of our experiences of these past years as Say Lou Lou.”

Watch the stunning short film below:

Lucid Dreaming is available now via À Deux/Cosmos Music and can be purchased on iTunes here.

Think of your dream girl band and this is it. Twin sisters, Say Lou Lou (aka Elektra and Miranda Kilbey), are quickly hyping up to the be the big sound of 2014.

Since the cracking ‘Julian’, the electronic Charlie’s Angels have gone from strength to strength.

The latest track, ‘Beloved’, is their most radio-ready track to date. ‘Beloved’ is a twinkling pop track full of wispy glacial vocals and lustre.

You can listen to the EP ‘Better in the Dark’ below, or pre order the full EP on iTunes here. The EP is set for release on 25 November 2013 via á Deux / Columbia Records.

Say Lou Lou have also released the EP on 7″ vinyl, which you can purchase here.
