Musical duo Say Lou Lou returned today with a stunning new single, titled “Ana,” taken from their forthcoming full-length album “Immortelle,” out on September 21 (á Deux/Cosmos
“Ana” was written and recorded in a secluded woodsy Beachwood Canyon recording studio late last year, the result of a close creative collaboration between twin sisters Say Lou Lou and producers Trent Mazur and Dash Le Francis. Serving as a stunning glimpse into what’s to come from the Australian/Swedish duo, “Ana”offers music fans a refreshing new sound, perfectly encapsulating everything from the old Hollywood golden era, like an early 60’s John Barry soundtrack, to the scratchy beats and strings plucked right from a 90’s triphopclassic. What Say Lou Lou is bringing to the table is nothing short of invigorating and ingenious, and much needed in the world of alt pop music in 2018.
The very personal upcoming album “Immortelle,” from which “Ana” is the introduction, is an exploration into the roles that one consciously or subconsciously play, particularly as a woman. A moody and sensual collection of songs heavily inspired by film noir and old James Bond scores, with layers of dreamy vocals and hazy harmonies over a mixture of live music and synth. “It was very symbiotic,” explains Elektra. “We had all of these mood boards and visuals from the beginning; we constantly referenced films and looked at clips. Parts of the album process were very structured: the vibe, the world, instruments and string references, giving thought to both the aural and visual aspects so they’re all properly cohesive.”The twins embraced the idea that an artist doesn’t need to be limited to a single medium; what’s important is that an audience can engage with the world the artists create, regardless of vessel. “Immortelle” and its accompanying moving and still imagery will attest to that.
“Ana” is out worldwide on all digital platforms from today.
