CHLOE FOY shares video for new single Without You
Chloe Foy writes a brand of melodic, homegrown music, bursting with colourful, lyrical and textural inflections evocative of much of the music she loves. Taking inspiration from classical music as much as wider transatlantic trends in folk and indie, Chloe’s songs comprise of carefully constructed arrangements that delicately compliment her cryptic lyrics.
Having performed at SXSW, Chloe has captured the attention of rapidly growing UK and US audiences. With the release of her singles ‘Asylum’, ‘Flaws’, and ‘In The Middle Of The Night’, she has accumulated over 9 million plays on Spotify, as well as earning the praise and airtime of the likes of NPR Radio’s Bob Boilen and the BBC’s Steve Lamacq. She has just been named a 2019 BBC Introducing “One To Watch” by Radio 3’s Late Junction. She spent summer 2018 touring in support of the mercurially talented Jesca Hoop (as well as singing backing vocals in Jesca’s band), before embarking on her first ever UK headline tour in the Autumn.
Talking of the new single, she says, “Without You is a song about grief and the loss of someone close to depression. So it talks of the struggles of the person who passes away and then couples that with the exploration of grieving and how it changes from being the worst thing in the world one minute, to possibly seeing the light at the end of the tunnel in the end, and how grief changes with the seasons.” On the video, she continues, “I had the opportunity to work with my super talented friend Will Thomas and head back to where I grew up in Gloucestershire to film. I wasn’t sure how to portray the subject of the song as it’s very personal but Will has achieved a sense and feeling of nostalgia and something that is up for interpretation, which I think is the way it should be.”
With her strikingly beautiful voice and emotionally direct songwriting, Chloe looks set to have an exciting 2019, with a debut album in the pipeline, a headline spring tour under her belt, and a string of major festival appearances – that have already included Green Man and Cambridge Folk Festival -already confirmed. See her live on the following dates.
11 Aug – Lakefest, Eastnor
15 Aug – Greenman Festival, Brecon Beacons
28 Aug – House Of St Barnabus, London
