Chloe Foy w/ Strings @ The Dorothy Pax, Sheffield

Poignant singer-songwriter Chloe Foy soars into 2020 with her introspective collection of enchanting vignettes leading the way. Callous Copper is out on 21 February 2020 via AntiFragile.

The EP is an intimate selection of songs, old and new, that have been re-imagined within the setting of a string quartet. Each track effortlessly compliments the next as the violin, viola and cello combine to create a sound that is otherworldly. Lyrically intimate and sonically tender, title track and upcoming single Callous Copper bewitches instantly. Mixing sweeping melodies with Chloe’s silk, smooth vocals and distinctively bittersweet songwriting style, Chloe has managed to create a sound that is both relatable and blissfully emotive. Fans of the likes of Laura Marling and Julia Jacklin will feel at home here.

Talking about the EP, Chloe elaborates: ‘I adore string music and think so much can be brought out in a song with the addition of violin, viola and cello. So that’s what I’ve aimed for here – a collection of songs, old and new and a cover of one of my favourites by Neil Young. All about birth, love, death and everything in between. The intricate complexities of life and living.’
