Chloe Lilac Shares New Song “Obvious”
- Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Chloe Lilac plans to releases her sophomore EP this year.
Back in January, the fourth single “Here's Your Song” from the EP was released with accompanying music video.
Following the song, she dropped the fifth single entitled “Obvious” on March 20th.
She describes the song as “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.”
The new EP is her first EP in a year. Chloe Lilac told MTV about the EP, “I feel like we're in a really cool time where women are finally being allowed to express angst and sexuality and really be honest and be viewed as people in the media versus just some sex thing. In mainstream media, people want that. People want raw, honest women, and that's not why I'm doing it. I'm doing it because that's who I am. I was in this situation-ship with this guy, and we were dating, and he told me we were exclusive, but then it turns out he was cheating on me the whole time. When I would go in with my writers, they did a great job of empowering me. I’d go in, tell them the story, and they'd say, “Why aren't you angry?"”.
She continued, “I finally broke up with him and realized I'm fed up with men. Why should I be silent about that? Why should I be silent about feeling used and being angry? Why do I have to write sad songs about being used? I want to empower younger people to not take that. My new EP is about friendship breakups and feeling angry about that. It's a lot of anger.”
