Rising dream-pop sister act Say Lou Lou are trying to make 2014 a year to remember by stuffing it with ace releases: a new single, “Everything We Touch,” is due on June 2nd, and the duo are planning to release their debut full-length later this year.

TIME has an exclusive look at the accompanying video, which serves as a behind-the-scenes peek at Say Lou Lou in the studio with a few of their collaborators. The song was written alongside Liam Howe and Hannah Robinson, veteran British songwriters who’ve worked with the pair before (on last year’s “Beloved”) and with contemporaries like Lana Del Rey.
