We’ve talked about it on this show before, but it remains to be true: creating a complete body of work is a brave thing to do during the streaming age. It’s that knowledge that makes our heads turn when one of our favourite artists decides to stay true to themselves and craft an album that demands you consume it as a whole rather than in pieces. Enter Say Lou Lou, the talented twin sisters from Sweden and their striking project, Immortelle. Filled with strings, tension building moments, and instrumentation that makes you think of vistas rather than concert halls, the sisters have truly created a stunning piece of work. Ken Grand-Pierre met up with Elektra Kilbey-Jansson and Miranda Kilbey-Jansson in Brooklyn, the day after they played at a church venue, to have the sisters make sense of the album they made.

“This isn’t an album that was made for playlists in mind.”
