CHLØË BLACK - DEATH PROOF
Chløë Black has lived a lot of lives in her twenty-something years; working as a waitress in an LA strip club is only part of the story. With her debut release ’27 Club’ racking up over 2M views and topping Hype Machine 3 times with over 2M SoundCloud plays, she’s developing a rapid cult fan base and drawing critical comparisons to Lana Del Ray and Amy Winehouse as one of the year’s most exciting voices.
Her new release “Deathproof” continues her ode to hedonism and the wildness of youth. Written by Chløë and produced by hit-making production team TMS, it’s another sophisticated, radio-ready track that screams a real songwriting poise in the young star, as well as a pensive head on her shoulders. "Though there are certain parallels between the song and it’s namesake (the 2007 Quentin Tarantino film) this particular 'Death Proof' has no obvious villain. It is a song about jubilant self destruction, a song that captures the ‘fuck it’ moments of youth borne from boredom, depression or simple naïveté.”
The singer continues: “There have been many studies regarding the fact that teenagers take more risks with their lives than children or adults. Scholars can’t seem to agree on why this is or what evolutionary purpose it serves but most tend to view this as a negative side of youth. I find that there’s a certain beauty in recklessness if you happen to survive it. So far so good.”
