Oklou is the musical project of French-born, London-based musician and producer Marylou Mayniel. Straddling the mainstream and underground stratospheres with ease, Oklou’s eclectic brand of alternative and electronic pop conveys a sound that is both experimental yet feels entirely natural and accessible. It’s this that sets the artist apart from her contemporaries and is ever present throughout her discography; from 2017’s ‘For The Beasts’ EP to 2018’s ‘The Rite of May’.
For her COLORS session, Oklou treats us to an ethereal performance of previously unreleased single ‘Fall’ which is taken from her forthcoming full-length record. The minimal and gentle instrumentation coupled with Maynie’s hauntingly beautiful and delicate vocals have you hooked on each word as she sings “Like a howling beast into the night / Running on from its final fight /
I will fall”. Dive into the transcendent performance of ‘Fall’ here and keep an eye out for more from Oklou later this year.
