Brooklyn Star Chloe Lilac Releases Her Brand New 7 Songs Sophomore EP ‘DOUCHEBAG‘
A project whose release marks the culmination of a period of unprecedented growth for the rising artist, DOUCHEBAG embodies a hard look inward — a fearless, anthemic collection of tracks intended to inspire raw strength from within. Chloe describes, “As a young woman I’m so conditioned to just take what men give me and thank them for it.
These songs on my EP are about empowering myself and my listeners to give them strength to manifest confidence. It’s for myself and for them. It’s both.”
Alongside the EP comes brand new single and title track, “DOUCHEBAG,” a kiss-off pop-punk ode to a worthless ex, of which Chloe adds, “It’s really about me just sticking it to that motherfucker.”
Amidst the lingering uncertainty that has shadowed much of 2020, Chloe Lilac has turned obstacle into opportunity, tapping into her DIY roots to self-direct and self-shoot two official videos in her Brooklyn home while in quarantine and connecting consistently with her fans on IG Live.
Chloe has also asserted herself as a bold activist for social causes. From taking a stand for LGBTQ rights during Pride Month (see partnerships with Pride.com and The Trevor Project) to joining the fight for racial justice (samples here & here), Chloe has become a beacon of strength and a model for young women and artists as they navigate the struggle of a global pandemic and a precarious future.
The New EP release follows a string of standout singles that have solidified Chloe’s place as a veritable force among rising alt/pop artists.
Last fall, singles “High School” and “Special” both were given Spotify ‘New Music Friday’ placement.
