Say Lou Lou - Julian

From the ashes of Saint Lou Lou comes Say Lou Lou.  Ok ok, it’s just a name change.  Otherwise this is the same Australian-Swedish female duo who last year brought us the excellent Maybe You.

Julian has been coming for a while, with an acoustic version already floating around the Internet, but today the final edit has finally surfaced.  And it doesn’t disappoint.  Where the acoustic version is plaintive and gentle, the final edit pairs the hushed, melancholic vocals of the sisters with a wash of lush synths and a simple dance beat pulse.  There’s even a saxophone solo towards the end, perhaps taking cue from M83’s Midnight City.  This is ethereal, romantic dream-pop that will melt you heart – get it in your ears and hope for a full album soon. 


Listen: Julian will be released on 6th May.
