Acclaimed Brooklyn born and raised talent Chloe Lilac treats fans with the release of fresh a mixtape today, alongside visuals for her new single, ‘lily’s backyard.’
“‘lily’s backyard’ is about betrayal. When you let someone in and they let you down.”
Speaking of the mixtape, Lilac says, “This mixtape is all about losing the people you love most. Whether that’s losing a best friend, losing a romantic partner, or losing yourself. It can be hard to let go when people come in and out of your life, you could feel betrayed, you could feel heartbreak, you could feel anger, but at the end of the day, it all comes back to love.”
Artist and songwriter Chloe Lilac returns with a stunningly dreamy release in the form of new single ‘sick’.
Lilac’s biting lyricism on the song likens relational toxicity to a contagious sickness – one that she needs to be distanced from so she can reclaim her power.
“I wrote ‘sick’ about dating someone who will do anything to get what they want. Whenever I re-listen to it I think of the phrase ‘hurt people hurt people.’ Being with someone like that can make you as sick as they are.”
Taken from the new mixtape ‘when i feel better‘ which is out now.
Brooklyn-based starlet Chloe Lilac returns today with the beautifully raw ’19’. This pop-rock song is an acutely aware scrutiny of the alarming state of the world today.
“I wrote ’19’ about how scary everything’s gotten in the last two years. I really sat and thought about the state of the world and how weird and out of control everything’s become since the pandemic. I want to stress how grateful I am for my physical health and my family’s health, I’ve been very blessed throughout the pandemic thus far. There’s just so much loss that’s been happening and still happening. It’s really intense, especially being witness to all the tragedy at what seems like the beginning of my adult life.”
The track is the latest to be taken from Chloe’s upcoming mixtape, which is due out on 19th November 2021.
Brooklyn-based artist Chloe Lilac is back in an epic fashion today with new single ’10 Things’. The track is the first from an upcoming mixtape project which is due out later in the autumn, and looks at the rough edges of a close friendship’s fallout.
“I wrote 10 things about a bad friend i had throughout my life, and finally realising it wasn’t healthy for me to keep them around anymore. it can be so frustrating when a close friend prioritises a relationship above your friendship. Best friend breakups are one of the most painful things you can go through, especially when you feel let down by someone you trust so much.”
It’s hard to believe that Chloe Lilac is still just 18-years old. With each release we have seen a confident, self assured pop star in the making evolve more and more into someone who’s sureness is so empowering to experience.
“As a young woman I’m so conditioned to just take what men give me and thank them for it. These songs on my EP are about empowering myself and my listeners to give them strength to manifest confidence. It’s for myself and for them. It’s both.”
Chloe’s sophomore EP is released today, give it a listen here.
Track of the week. My love for Chloe Lilac led me to this new collaboration that has been released featuring an outfit called Young Saab. I know so little about these guys but this track caught me right from the start. The sound is minimal yet powerfully emotive.
“This video was a passion project for everyone on my team and was the most I’ve been involved in writing the treatment and creating the video. We used a sex doll to symbolise only being viewed for my sexuality rather than my character as a woman. In the beginning of the video it’s just me, symbolising how alone and uncomfortable I felt, and by the end I’m with all my friends who supported and uplifted me.”
