Chlöe Howl - This Song's Not About You

Chlöe Howl’s tune This Song’s Not About You has been available as a free download for a while now via Amazon, but now Chlöe (or rather one of her team) has uploaded it to Soundcloud. Mind you, we quite like the idea of Chlöe sitting at home in her pyjamas, with a cup of tea in hand uploading the song to Soundcloud on her own and wondering how she should tag it. After all that’s what Beyoncé did when she uploaded her ‘no-promo’ album to iTunes wasn’t it? 

Anyway, before we get carried away, this one sounds like a demo because it is a demo. It’s a bit rough and ready, it’s a bit indie, it’s a bit punchy and lyrically it’s the modern version of Carly Simon's You’re So Vain. It finds Chlöe singing about a guy who probably spends a lot of time posing in front of the mirror, running his hand through his immaculate haircut, wondering how did someone get so good looking as him. “Ok your gorgeous, your ego’s enormous,” Chlöe fires on this giving-him-the-finger stomper, its choppy energy becoming an asset rather than a drawback.

Chlöe Howl’s debut album is scheduled for June 9th.
