KLOE – Teenage Craze

Popstar-in-the-making KLOE is finally ready to release her debut EP Teenage Craze and just to not leave us exaggeratedly eager to listen to it, she shared today the title track off the record. And it’s defo a banger. Kloe faces a soundscape that we could define as future-r’n’b, studded with exotic electronic vibes and thumping beats, embellishing it with an extremely sensual vocal delivery.

Speaking with Nylon about the song, KLOE said: ‘Teenage Craze,’ to me, feels like the start of something. I wrote it at the tail end of last year about everything that had happened to me in 2015. The ‘fake friends’ drama, feeling like I was ‘losing my head’—all very true to what I was going through. I had just started working in London, a city where everything is almost hyper-real. The people, the industry—all of it. I was very disconnected from everything I’d ever known growing up in Glasgow. Nostalgic about my past and the people who were in it. In retrospect, I think ‘Teenage Craze’ is a dark, twisted love letter to my youth. And a farewell to my teenage years.

KLOE’s Teenage Craze EP is out on February 5 via Columbia Records (UK) and IAMSOUND (U.S.)
