Say Lou Lou are set to drop their sophomore album Immortelle on September 21. Already, the twin sister duo have shared lead single “Ana,” and now we’ve got the second single. “Golden Child” is further reminder of Miranda and Elektra Kilbey’s musical mastery. The song itself is a nod to the golden era of Hollywood and 70s West Coast style with clean guitar hooks and tight drum fills.
The new album Immortelle will be following up the duo’s acclaimed debut Lucid Dreaming from 2015. But the new project represents the duo’s break from the corporate music world. After releasing their debut, the Kilbeys sought to take fuller control over their artistic vision. So, the two retreated to Los Angeles to craft songs more representative of their headspace.
“Golden Child” is the culmination of their intimate creative process with producers Trent Mazur and Dash Le Francis. To explain the meaning of the songs, Miranda and Elektra shared this statement:
“Golden Child was created as an ode to our younger sisters – and to our younger selves in a way – explaining how tricky and confusing cultural/patriarchal structures can be in your self-discovery – so contradictory and hard to navigate. Imploring them to free themselves from the invisible shackles of expected ideas of young womanhood and see the world and life that lie ahead of them ‘on the other side’ – kind of like an empowering lullaby.”
Give a listen to “Golden Child” down below. Then, head over to Say Lou Lou’s Spotify page to check out the rest of their music.
