Glaswegian-born KLOE is a name to watch, that’s for sure. The Scottish singer-songwriter may still be courting her teenage years, but she’s already being backed by major players that run the show for Florence + The Machine, Charli XCX, HAIM, Wet and CHVRCHES to name just a few.
Released this week via Columbia Records, KLOE’s third single Touch has been produced by Lewis Gardiner from fellow Glasgow outfit Prides, and it serves up a refreshingly honest insight in to youthful ambivalence.
Inspiration from decade-spanning female singer-songwriters (Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell, Alanis Morissette and Taylor Swift) and contemporary artistic influences (St. Vincent, Drake and The Weeknd) are clear in KLOE’s sophisticated style of putting pen to paper and bringing her personal, snapshot lyrics to life with contemporary, electronic production flair, as she carves out her own niche in the music industry.
“I’m so excited to finally be releasing new music. Touch is the last piece of the puzzle to my little trilogy – which began last December with Grip. The track is about a guy who introduced me to a lot of vice and made me grow up a lot. This song marks the end of an era – and also the beginning of what’s to come. ”
This weekend, KLOE will kick start a regular series of BLAKOUT club nights in her home city. Meanwhile catch the dazzling beauty of Touch below.
