Can you talk to us more about your video “YOU WE I”?
The video for YOU WE I was very casual. We had Corey Rutledge (a filmmaker and producer working with Swoon NYC) at rehearsal filming a BTS project. I started dancing and messing around to the track and he decided to film it. I chose to make it the visual, so viewers could see the fun, no-makeup and carefree side of me.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
Being in a relationship, to be honest. We wrote the song with the whole idea of Instagram couples in mind. We wanted it to be a very upbeat and happy summer bop that represented YOUNG LOVE.
How was the filming experience?
I felt very comfortable because it was so chill. I was just being myself; laughing at some bad dance moves while I sang to the track. Corey filmed me on last tour in the Spring so he is so good at bringing my crazy out. We always have the best time working together.
How was the recording and writing process?
I wrote and cut this song with the PRBLMSLVRS in a studio in Houston about a year ago. Rian was working on the beat, experimenting with some sounds that weren’t lining up right. He ended up scrapping the entire track. I was shook!! Rian started on a completely new track, Mel and I came up with some cool melodies, then we wrote most of the song while I was in the recording booth. I loved working with them and knew we would continue working together. They brought a really cool urban sound out of me that I didn’t know I had. We work together as often as we can. They are family.
What role does LA play in your writing?
There are so many creative people in Los Angeles! It is very easy to schedule sessions, attend events and network constantly. I love working in LA with its opportunities and best vibe.
Does your new single mean we can expect a new album – how’s that coming along?
Definitely! Music is on the way. I have been in the studio every week working on new sounds that I cannot wait to share with everyone. I feel very connected to the beats and lyrics we’re making. It’s very REAL. ALREADY OBSESSED.
Any tentative release date or title in mind?
We’re planning to release a new single in the next month, so be on the lookout for that!
Any plans to hit the road?
My team is actually working on some exciting touring opportunities now. I can’t wait to get back to tour life! It was such a grind last spring, but I loved meeting new people and performing live everyday.
What else is happening next in Chlo’s world?
May see some crossovers in the near future with music and fashion and makeup. Always trying to keep my social media live. And some dope march ideas coming through.
