Drawing from her folktronica roots, Chloe’s earlier EP ‘Thalamus’ received airplay on BBC Radio 6 and BBC Introducing. Her 2020 singles – “Judgement Day,” “Helping Hand,” and “Attack” – showcased her versatility. “The Crazy One” brings all these influences under one roof, resulting in Chloe’s most diverse work yet. Beyond her music, Chloe is a fierce advocate for raising awareness about ‘invisible’ illnesses.
