I knew about them today, while I was reading to Muumuse, I found this post about this new duo Say Lou Lou and I stole Bradley's post and post it here 4 y'all. I'm in love with their sound and their look, they remeber me of ABBA and Cher (talking about look).

auto_a5c7f132-1b31-c271-6a6c-d12514b50b3

 

 

 

And now, it’s time for a long overdue introduction to Say Lou Lou, the gorgeous Swedish-Australian twin sister act.

(They grew up shuttling in between Stockholm and Sydney. Thus, they are Swedish-Australian.)

When the duo was first being buzzed about last year, they went by the name Saint Lou Lou, but they’ve since switched over to Say Lou Lou. (Or SAY! Lou Lou, as Legendtina might say.)

 

Say Lou Lou’s 2012 debut single, “Maybe You,” is perhaps one of the more perfect songs I’ve ever heard in my life. It’s heartbreaking and gorgeous and nostalgic and lump-in-throat-inducing; a song so intimate and melancholy that when it plays, time itself seems to stop—at least for a moment. Or something like that, at least.

It helps, also, that the accompanying Philippe Tempelman-directed video is a slow-motion work of art.

 

 

 

Following their debut (the official video’s racked up well over 300,000 views, not too shabby for a debut), the sister act hit the road to perform across Europe, including an opening slot on Hurts‘ tour. They’ve also lent their dreamy vocals toGoldroom‘s bouncy, ’80′s synth-pop inspired “Sweetness Alive” and developed their own record label (à Deux). Now, they’re preparing their label’s first release in May: “Julian.”

 
 

“Oh Julian, once we get across the border/Oh Julian, I’m in your heart,” the brooding twosome croon on their new number. Like “Maybe You,” it’s a tender electronic production—like a mixture of the spooky alt-pop sensibility of Bat For Lashes(see her similarly lush ode to a special fellow, “Daniel”) and the melancholy world-weariness of Swedish mystery disco vixen, Sally Shapiro.

Basically, they’re 2 for 2.

The track arrives on May 6, along with a B-side called “Fool Of Me,” featuring Chet Faker. But wait—there’s more!

Earlier today, the talented Monsieur Adi premiered his entrancing mix of the track, adding a lively, dance floor-friendly bounce to the otherwise ghostly original.

 

Listen on Soundcloud.com

 

 

They’re stunning, stylish and the tunes are to die for. What’s not to love?

“Julian” will be released on May 6. (iTunes)

 

Julian is a masterpiece  :flutter:

 

So are you on board?

I have no idea why it's coming so late, but hopefully the wait is going to worth it!

 

And yeah, I love that photo too! It's the cover for the Better In The Dark single.

I thought there was already a thread for Say Lou Lou... I must've been wrong  :P

I love Say Lou Lou. I discovered them right before Christmas and I was obsessed with Julian. Such a good song

OMG yes, indie electropop queens. I am in love with them. So sad to hear their album is pushed back until September, this summer would have been an even more amazing time for music with their debut.  My friend actually got to see them live in Glasgow and said that they killed it. Apparently they have a more traditional pop sound live
 

 

Feels Like We Only Go Backwards [Tame Impala Cover]*

 

 

Could we all just take a moment. Just listen. This cover is phenomenal. Couldn't stop playing it when I first heard it. I love Tame Impala's version (their best song imo), but this cover took it to a new level entirely. The lyrics have so much more meaning and it just really hits home with their ~stripped back style. This >>>>>> any of their original songs (those are great too tho)

I really like their aesthetic, although I'm not 100% reeled in on them yet. I'm excited to hear their full-length LP soon though.
