Brooklyn, New York native bedroom/blue pop/r&b singer/songwriter Chloe Lilac recently released her single "Moderation" following her previous release Obvious off her forthcoming sophomore EP due to be out later this year via RCA Records.
The single "Obvious" takes a critical jab at the troublesome intricacies of a new relationship, Chloe describes, "'Obvious' is about being with someone that clearly doesn’t like you as much as you like them, being in denial about it and then realizing you’re better than that bullshit." While the single "Moderation" is brimming with a punk-inspired edge styled alongside jarring guitars and unabashed vocals, where Chloe is at her most raw to-date. She describes, “This song is about my struggle with mental health and self hatred. I’m a really intense person and I sometimes feel like people can only handle me in moderation."
