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.
Last month, KLOE released her third single Touch which was produced by Lewis Gardiner from fellow Glasgow outfit Prides, and the love song serves up a refreshingly honest insight in to youthful ambivalence (“I wrote the song about this guy who is a lot older than me. He introduced me to a world of drama, vice etc – all the good stuff…“).
The Geej Ower-directed video which premiered this week is equally as personal, shot in the fast-rising pop star’s home city and featuring her real life best friend
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.
