Today, Brooklyn artist Chloe Lilac has announced her forthcoming debut EP titled, Manic Pixie Dream, due out March 8 via RCA Records. Alongside today’s EP announcement, Chloe releases EP title track and brand new single, “Manic Pixie Dream.” Stream the song everywhere now here and watch the lyric video below.
Describing the new single, Chloe notes, “The manic pixie dream girl trope is very frustrating to me and that’s what this song is about. It’s an unattainable standard for women. I was finding that the people I was dating expected me to be a manic pixie dream girl instead of a real, complex, multi-dimensional person.” The song takes all of the best parts of bedroom pop and brings them into one: a nondescript, wavy bass, Lilac in her sleepiest lower range, and a simple, overall smoothness to the track. It’s perfectly fit for active or passive listening, and everyone can find something to love about it. Today’s EP announcement comes on the heels of a trailblazing year for Chloe Lilac marked by a string of standout singles that have secured her a well-deserved spot as a top new rising artist. Refinery29 included Chloe among their 2019 ‘Artists To Watch’ noting, “Her relatable lyrics and dreamy melodies don’t just make music. They make moments,” while Fashionably Early affirms Chloe “has laid the framework for a potentially colossal 2019.” She was also named in SoundCloud’s ‘Artist to Watch’ list for 2019. Following a slew of fall tour dates with Rejjie Snow and supporting both Charlotte Lawrence and Sasha Sloan, Chloe has announced her first 2019 show as the headliner of Neon Gold’s renowned ‘Popshop’ showcase next week in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right.
