Twin sisters Miranda Anna and Elektra June Kilbey-Jansson, a.k.a. Say Lou Lou, have been bubbling under for more than a year since they first popped up on the BBC's Sound Of 2014 list. The duo makes maximalist synth-pop, along the lines of Tove Lo or IconaPop, and has demonstrated excellent taste in producers so far, including nu-disco favorites Lindstrøm and Tiger & Woods.

The Kilbey-Janssons are already stars in their two homelands, Australia and Sweden, and from the sound of their upcoming debut album, Lucid Dreaming (our April 6), they are going for it. The latest single is the non-stop crescendo "Nothing But A Heartbeat," and it's a representative taste of what's to come.
