Chloe Howl is an exceptional young talent from the UK starting to make some waves ever since her inclusion on the BBC Sound of 2014 poll at the start of the year! I first heard “Paper Heart” – the track I’d like to introduce you to today – when it was submitted to us for airplay at the radio station I used to work for, and while I didn’t initially get into the song, I have recently started playing this one on repeat on my personal playlist. I downloaded the track on iTunes three days ago and I’ve spun it over 100 times because it is just so damn catchy and I think she is a definite talent to look out for in the coming months. While “Paper Heart” has done its rounds on radio internationally already I still felt it was worth sharing with you ahead of her newer single (“Rumour“) which is just as great and is starting to get a lot of rotation on smaller radio stations here in South Africa.
Chloe’s debut album is currently scheduled for release in June and I am very excited to hear what she is going to be bringing to the table for the project as a whole. I caught a listen to a couple of the tracks a little while ago when my boss at the label played a few of the songs as part of an early listen and I must say it sounds incredibly promising. I’m hoping that “Rumour” and “Paper Heart” can still build a bit of momentum for her before the album hits stores and hopefully you’ll enjoy the song as much as I do and not only go and buy it on iTunes, but also go request the track on your local radio station so she can get a bit of extra traction! I believe in her talents and potential as an artist and I think it’s going to be a great album. Get on board!
