“Australia’s next big pop act.”
“CXLOE is your new dark pop princess.”
– V MAGAZINE
“Australia is on the verge of a new golden age of pop music, and Sydney-born, LA-based CXLOE is one of the acts boldly leading the charge.”
– MUSIC JUNKEE
“Lorde has conquered the world, Billie Eilish is the biggest rising star on the planet and, if there’s any justice, CXLOE will be hot on the heels of both those trailblazers.”
– TIME OUT
“This is a pop powerhouse.”
– NAT TENCIC | TRIPLE J
Set to perform at Falls Festival this year, and with just five singles under her belt, CXLOE has already amassed over 16 million global streams as well as high rotation across triple j and global media support touting the words “next big thing”. The Sydney and LA-based artist has already defined herself with a broadly appealing yet critically acclaimed and completely idiosyncratic blend of alternative, electronic, and ‘dark pop’.
Now, she’s back with Sick feat. Gnash – her sixth studio track, a characteristically infectious dark pop banger featuring chart-topping LA artist Gnash (of I Hate U, I Love U fame), co-written by New Zealand-born, LA-based singer/producer/writer Sam McCarthy, aka BOYBOY.
“Sick is about loving too much and never wanting to show it,” CXLOE (Chloe Papandrea) shares. “It’s about never having that middle ground or normalcy within yourself because your emotions are extremes of each other. Sometimes we want to be showered in affection and jewels and dinners, and sometimes we just want that raw emotion of feeling sick over someone, like an obsession — that pit of your stomach sick.”
CXLOE splits her time between the recording studio in Los Angeles and her home in Sydney, playing full houses at her Australian national headline shows and performing at The Roxy and School Night in LA last month.
CXLOE has worked in the studio with the likes of Kito, Michael Pollack, Alex Hope, The Futuristics, Justin Tranter (the multi-platinum songwriter who’s written songs for Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Gwen Stefani), Ross Golan (who co-wrote Ariana Grande’s Grammy-nominated Dangerous Woman), and Casey Smith (who co-wrote Sick with CXLOE).
