An unsettling view of a love that has already closed down, and a musical search for salvation from the tepid haze of indecision.

Tell You is a song about knowing that you have to leave someone you’ve been with for a long time, and the subsequent fear of being alone. KYŁO's experimental downtempo pop has been compared to artists like Banks and ABRA, and her new track Tell You extends a melody-forward, low-key groove into the hinterlands of imagined heartbreak.

The mind can create passion and sorrow all on its own. With a smoky lead vocal, thick harmony, and the undulating swell of an ever-present bass, Tell You constructs a palace of romantic anxiety on the shifting sands of KYŁO's imagination. We are present to the inner conflict, the need for closure, and the struggle towards freedom. Tell You, the latest from Canadian artist KYŁO, is an unsettling view of a love that has already closed down, and a musical search for salvation from the tepid haze of indecision.

KYŁO is an electro-pop artist based in Toronto, Ontario. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
