chloe mk may come from Nashville and reside in NYC, but the whole world is her stage for the viral hits she makes. The singer-songwriter, who won season 13 of The Voice, recently released her debut EP titled Fantasy via Republic Records.
The record is a sparkling 6-song batch of catchy melodies, vibrant sonics, and thoughtful personal narratives of living on this internet-connected planet.
New tune David Bowie just came out and it’s a lyrically bittersweet, and even raw, tribute to the legendary musician and cultural icon. But it also goes deeper than that. chloe mk explains, “[It’s also]… about what it feels like to lose someone you actually know, and love, and spend every day with. It’s not poetic… It’s not pretty… It just hurts and there’s no point in acting like it doesn’t.”
chloe mk puts her emotions on the line on “David Bowie”, adding drama to the more subdued, floating atmosphere. Fast-clicking percussion, slow, globular beats, and expansive synths support her layered vocals that combine a passionate lead and tiers of dreamier harmonies.
