There's a stark honesty to Chloe Foy's work.
The Manchester songwriter's early singles are laced with wisdom beyond her years, the stark but deeply imaginative folk settings supplying something supple but also intense.
Heading out on tour across the UK this week, Chloe Foy has attracted a flurry of attention, the shows kicking off at London's historic St Pancras Old Church tonight (April 4th).
New single 'Oh You Are Not Well' leads the way, with her poised lyricism dealing with love, mental health, destructive relationships, and survival.
From the delicate guitar line to her urgent vocal, the sighing chorus in the background and the martial drums 'Oh You Are Not Well' leads with an incredible sense of purpose, with Chloe Foy taking time to place each note in exactly the right position.
A superb start to her UK tour, the single might well be the most incisive piece she has yet gifted us.
Tune in now.
