Premiere: Cloe’s “Last Christmas”

emilytreadgold #2, Premiere

Cloe has the prettiest voice and we love her take on the classic "Last Christmas" we talked to her about the song and what she has planned for next year.

How did you get started in Music?

Cloe: Ive always loved music, and Ive always written - they weren’t always complete songs, but Id always find some sort of artistic way to put my thoughts into words. For my entire life, there was no question as to what I wanted to do with my future - I just wanted to be an artist. I recorded a few covers in a studio around one year ago, and somehow, it got to a producer. I was asked to record originals, and ended up making twelve songs with an amazing team of talent. Thats when I realized that I could actually live a life surrounded by art. I began finding my dark sound, and I have continued to build off of it.

What drew you to “Last Christmas” as a cover?

Cloe: “Last Christmas” really is a sad song. It has a deep meaning to it, and we knew that we could make the song sound how the words feel. Basically, we sat down at the piano, and made it sound like a song I wouldve made. It speaks about having your heart broken at a specific time of year, so that time will always be associated with heartbreak. All it needed was a key change, and someone with a sad soul to show what the song could be.

What has been inspiring you lately?

Cloe: Lately, my mind has been flooded with a lot - artists, aesthetics, and way too many other things. Ive really just been inspired by darkness lately, and everything that isnt perfect in the human mind. Ive been exploring the wholeexistenceconcept, and really just analyzing how insane the world is. I mean, reality is absolutely horrifying, and I think that people should start thinking about that.

Who are your musical idols?

Cloe: I have so many musical idols, because each artist gives me different feeling and emotions. Lately, my main artists/bands have been Sasha Sloan, Halsey, Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey, lovelytheband, Olivia OBrien, EZI, Alessia Cara, Maggie Lindemann, Gnash, and so many more. One thing that all of these artists have in common is their ability to speak about sadness and insanity in such a poetic way.

What are you looking forward to in 2019?

Cloe: In 2019, Im looking forward to building my career. I cant wait to be an artist, and really find myself through my music. I get to work on originals, and covers, with an insanely talented & understanding team.
