Poignant singer-songwriter Chloe Foy soars into 2020 with her introspective collection of enchanting vignettes leading the way. Callous Copper is out on 21st February 2020 via AntiFragile.
The EP is a intimate selection of songs, old and new, that have been re-imagined within the setting of a string quartet. Each track effortlessly compliments the next as the violin, viola and cello combine to create a sound that is otherworldly. Lyrically intimate and sonically tender, title track and upcoming single Callous Copper bewitches instantly. Mixing sweeping melodies with Chloe’s silk, smooth vocals and distinctively bittersweet songwriting style, Chloe has managed to create a sound that is both relatable and blissfully emotive. Fans of the likes of Laura Marling and Julia Jacklin will feel at home here.
Talking about the EP, Chloe elaborates, “I adore string music and think so much can be brought out in a song with the addition of violin, viola and ‘cello. So that’s what I’ve aimed for here – a collection of songs, old and new and a cover of one of my favourites by Neil Young. All about birth, love, death and everything in between. The intricate complexities of life and living.”
Since moving from Gloucestershire to Manchester in 2014, Chloe has gone from strength to strength. With the release of her singles Asylum, Flaws, Oh You Are Not Well and In The Middle Of The Night, she has accumulated over 14 million plays on Spotify, as well as earning the praise and airtime of the likes of NPR Radio’s Bob Boilen and BBC 6Music’s Steve Lamacq. 2018 saw her perform at SXSW and in January last year she was named a 2019 BBC Introducing One To Watch by BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction. In Spring 2019 she completed a successful headline UK tour followed by festival shows at Greenman and Cambridge Folk Festival. Chloe has also received praise from a range of well-regarded online publications including Clash, The 405, Earmilk and The Line of Best Fit to name a few. With Callous Copper, Chloe will continue to mesmerise listeners with her ethereal blend of melancholic indie-folk.
