First Look: Chlöe Howl

Chlöe Howl

British teenage sensation Chlöe Howl is set to impress audiences abroad as she embarks on a string of highly anticipated North American live dates next month, coupled with the March 11 release of her forthcoming extended play, “Rumour”.

Hailed by the BBC and it’s highly regarded “Sound of…” series, which were previously won by Adele, Ellie Goulding and Haim, and nominated for the Critic’s Choice Award at the 2014 BRIT Awards last month, Chlöe Howl is clearly exciting critics and music fans with her uninhibited lyricism and infectious electro-pop beats. Already climbing the charts in Europe, the feisty and outspoken redhead is poised to do much the same here in the U.S. in 2014.

Chlöe Howl’s unique approach to songwriting suggests she’s lived a full life already as she ponders relationships, casual affairs, the nightlife scene and growing old. Channeling her love of English literature — and at only 18 years of age — She is fast becoming recognized for her quirky observational storytelling and no-nonsense approach in her music.

Her U.S. debut comes as a 4-track EP titled “Rumour” and will be released in time for her SXSW dates on March 11 on Columbia Records. The EP is an impressive taster of what’s come from this promising young star who cites bands such a The Smiths and New Order as her influences. Poised to create waves next month with her live performances in Austin’s SXSW Festival and again in New York City at the exclusive downtown club The Box, and with the seal of approval from the likes of NME, Stereogum and Pitchfork, Chlöe Howl is certainly a teenage force to be reckoned with.

Chlöe Howl is currently on tour in Europe with Ellie Goulding and is working on her debut album. Be sure to catch her live on one of the following dates:
