The ShortListen: KLOE (no. 345)

Broken-hearted electropop from Glaswegian newcomer

The ShortListen: KLOE (no. 345)
07 July 2016


What’s the story? Our second Glaswegian synth-based artist of the week and for that we make no apologies. We've featured 19-year-old KLOE a couple of times before on The ShortListen with fairly dark, minimal efforts - on UDSM, she ups the tempo but retains the darkness, featuring one of the most devastatingly cutting opening verses we've ever heard. This is classic Robyn Dancing On My Own territory - being let down by someone you care about in a disco, with a load of booze inevitably leading to tears, an ill-advised late night kebab and a general mess of a night. But damn it makes for great, brutally honest lyrics. We've said it before but it bears repeating: there's only one KLOE we care about right now, and it sure ain't a Kardashian.

For fans of: Chvrches, Atom Tree, Prides

In three words: Dark tear-filled synthpop
