FRESH: ‘Obvious’ – Chloe Lilac

Chloe Lilac releases “Obvious”

Brooklyn-based artist Chloe Lilac has released a brand new single titled, “Obvious”, which is taken from Chloe’s forthcoming sophomore EP, due later this year. A slick, pop/R&B track that takes a critical jab at the troublesome intricacies of a new relationship, Chloe describes, “Obvious’ is about being with someone that clearly doesn’t like you as much as you like them, being in denial about it and then realizing you’re better than that bullshit”.

“Obvious” marks Chloe’s second release of 2020 following previous single “Here’s Your Song”, which debuted in January to critical love from outlets such as The FADER and UPROXX, who noted the track “shows another side of Lilac — one that’s more introspective”. Last Autumn, singles “High School” and “Special” kicked off the release of Chloe’s upcoming second EP, each debuting alongside stunning official videos. Chloe toured extensively in 2019 including direct support runs with mxmtoon and Tessa Violet as well as headline dates in NYC and L.A. for Neon Gold Records’ ‘Popshop’ showcases. Chloe also performed at SXSW 2019 and has toured with other rising artists including Charlotte Lawrence, Sasha Sloan, and Rejjie Snow. Chloe documented her Autumn 2019 L.A. headline trip in a photo diary exclusive with Flaunt.

Her debut EP, “Manic Pixie Dream”, kickstarted a slew of critical acclaim that has secured Chloe Lilac a well-deserved spot as a top rising artist. Chloe has already enjoyed 19 million+ Spotify streams, a feat first kicked off by the 2018 release of “Stolen Liquor” which hit No.1 on Hype Machine while “Summer” has attained 10 million + Spotify streams alone, sparking support from Ladygunn who debuted the track’s official video. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Chloe’s humble roots of sneaking out to perform on the streets of NYC by age 13 continue to inspire her artistry. Building her skills as a self-produced songwriter, Chloe began releasing songs in 2017 with her first-ever release “Reckless” breaking the Top 5 on the US Spotify Viral Chart.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
