This song is as beautiful as the girls singing it. I mean…..wowza. Saint Lou Lou is Elekra and Miranda Kilbey, two sisters who have spent their lives growing up between Australia and Sweden, which I can’t help thinking has had an affect on their distinctive sound. The stunning ‘Maybe You‘ shows mixtures of light and dark, sultry and uplifting, perfectly described by ‘scandipop’ as ‘so wistfully sad that you almost feel pangs of guilt for enjoying it’. Reminiscent in parts to The XX and ‘A Real Hero’ by College, it’s sexy stuff. Aptly signed to the uber trendy Parisien label Kitsuné, the released ‘Maybe You‘ on 24th August. Last week they premiered an equally stunning video made by fashion director Philippe Tempelman to accompany the single . Slow motion, black and white, sexy, sultry goodness. I love it. Let the summer wind down to the soundtrack of Saint Lou Lou.
Catch St Lou Lou at Gold Dust in Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, London on September 19th.
