Australian/Swedish twins Say Lou Lou return with their first new single in three years, the alluring ‘Ana’. Feeling like something plucked straight from a Baz Lurhman soundtrack, the new track is as seductive as it is surprising, the girls take a refreshing new direction from their debut Lucid Dreaming. Produced by Trent Mazur and Dash Le Francis, ‘Ana’ is high drama personified, merging luxurious string arrangements with ice cold hip hop beats and sits somewhere between Portishead and Cypress Hill.

Taken from upcoming sophomore album Immortelle, the record explores roles we take both consciously and subconsciously and is heavily influenced by both classic film scores and film noir. Explaining further, Elektra said: “It was very symbiotic. 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 new sound offers a grander vision to what Say Lou Lou could become as a project. It takes the cinematic qualities of early epics including ‘Julian’ and ‘Angels (Above Me)’ and paints them in new sophisticated, darker tones.

Immortelle is released September 21st.
