NY artist Chloe Lilac is back with her brand new mixtape “when i feel better” featured along with a new single “sick“
Endearing vulnerability and raw lyricism characterize each track on the mixtape as a diary entry of sorts, entrusting the listener with Chloe’s vivid viewpoints on the world. On the project, Chloe notes, “when i feel better is a collection of songs I wrote in quarantine, hoping that I’d release them when the world was in a better place. I can’t say that the world is in a better place now, but it felt right to put these out.”
Ending with an exasperated sigh, the introspective track was featured on NPR ‘All Songs Considered’ and is now released on the mixtape as a new acoustic version, stripped-down and revealing an elevated passion in her vocal performance.
The dreamy production echoed by Chloe’s biting lyricism aids in her likening of relational toxicity to a contagious sickness – one that she needs to be distanced from to reclaim her power. On the track, she says, “I wrote ‘sick’ about dating someone who will do anything to get what they want. Whenever I re-listen to it I think of the phrase ‘hurt people hurt people.’ Being with someone like that can make you as sick as they are.”
From taking a stand for LGBTQ rights during Pride Month (see a partnership here with Pride.com) to joining the fight for racial justice, Chloe has become a beacon of strength and a model for young women and artists.
