(New York, NY – January 24, 2019) Today, Brooklyn artist Chloe Lilac has announced her forthcoming debut EP titled, Manic Pixie Dream, due out March 8 via RCA Records.
Describing the new single, Chloe notes, “The manic pixie dream girl trope is very frustrating to me and that’s what this song is about. It’s an unattainable standard for women. I was finding that the people I was dating expected me to be a manic pixie dream girl instead of a real, complex, multi-dimensional person.”
Following a slew of fall dates with Rejjie Snow and supporting both Charlotte Lawrence and Sasha Sloan, Chloe has announced her first 2019 show as the headliner of Neon Gold’s renowned ‘Popshop’ showcase next week 1/29 in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right. Show details here and tickets available here.
Today’s EP announcement comes on the heels of a trailblazing year for Chloe Lilac marked by a string of standout singles that have secured her a well-deserved spot as a top new rising artist. Refinery29 included Chloe among their 2019 ‘Artists To Watch’ noting, “Her relatable lyrics and dreamy melodies don’t just make music. They make moments,” while Fashionably Early affirms Chloe “has laid the framework for a potentially colossal 2019.”
Having released only a handful of singles as a young recording artist, Chloe has already enjoyed 3 million + Spotify streams and notable playlist adds (e.g. New Music Friday, Young & Free, & Chill Vibes), a momentous feat first kicked off by the July release of single “Stolen Liquor” which hit #1 on the Hype Machine ‘Popular Chart’ and sparked NYLON to claim the track “will have you reminiscing about those summer nights in high school where you snuck out of your parents’ house with a bottle of their wine.” Chloe followed with “Summer,” which drew praise from outlets such as Elevator Magazine, who describe how Chloe’s “unique vocals shine over the ambient instrumental,” while Ladygunn says the song grants an opportunity to “relive summertime’s youthful nostalgia,” which they noted alongside their exclusive interview and official video premiere here. In December 2018, Chloe released the Heartbreak City Sessions, a 3-track release with single “Heartbreak City” as the centerpiece alongside two b-sides.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Chloe spent her early years traversing the F & G subway lines, a humble birthplace for her love of songwriting and performing. By the age of 13, she began to sneak out to perform on the streets of NYC. In 2017, Chloe Lilac self-released a string of singles as a first introduction to her artistry and the early support was evident with her first-ever song, “Reckless”, breaking the Top 5 on the U.S. Spotify Viral Chart. Her early songs and live shows saw critical nods from outlets like DIY Magazine, who note Lilac’s “knack for an emotional gut-punch,” and HillyDilly, who proclaim, “Chloe Lilac has mastered the art of ‘bedroom pop.'”
