Chloe Lilac is a singer-songwriter from Brooklyn, New York. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “sick” single.
Chloe Lilac – “sick” music video
“Where were you at 2 am? Your body’s next to me, your mind’s with her. Dreaming of your sweet cocaine, the two addictions you fell in love with first. I saw your red flags, who the hell is dead inside? I’m done looking back, I hope one day you’ll come alive.” – lyrics
‘sick’ tells a heartfelt tale about a young woman who shares a problematic relationship with a dysfunctional guy who is dead inside. Apparently, she tried to ignore her partner’s toxic tendencies, but she can’t feel sorry for him anymore because she’s fresh out of sympathy. Later, she tells her partner, “How could you make me feel so loved when the whole time you were numb? Went out of your way to mess me up ‘cause you hate yourself so much? You said you need me just to live, you don’t mean it – you’re just sick.”
“I’m sorry I’m not alcohol, I’m sorry that your girlfriend broke your heart. I should be the drug you want – were you always so dysfunctional?”
“I wrote ‘sick’ about dating someone who will do anything to get what they want. Whenever I re-listen to it I think of the phrase: ‘hurt people hurt people.’ Being with someone like that can make you as sick as they are.” – Chloe Lilac explained
‘sick’ contains a relatable narrative that likens relationship toxicity to a contagious sickness – one that Chloe Lilac needs to be distanced from in order to reclaim her power. The emotional tune possesses ear-pleasing vocals, tuneful melodies, and vibrant instrumentation flavored with contemporary and alternative pop elements. Furthermore, “sick” is featured on Chloe Lilac’s latest four-track EP, entitled, “when I feel better.”
Chloe Lilac – “when i feel better” EP
“‘when i feel better’ is a collection of songs I wrote in quarantine, hoping that I’d release them when the world was in a better place. I can’t say that the world is in a better place now, but it felt right to put these out.” – Chloe Lilac explained
‘when i feel better’ traverses relationship struggles, self-realization, and mental health battles. The project is an exposé defining Chloe Lilac’s growth over the past year. Endearing vulnerability and raw lyricism characterize each track on the mixtape as a diary entry of sorts, entrusting listeners with Chloe’s vivid viewpoints on the world.
Through the uncertainty that shadowed much of 2020/21, Chloe Lilac tapped into her DIY roots to self-direct and self-shoot two music videos in her Brooklyn home while in quarantine. Also, she asserted herself as a strong activist for social causes. From taking a stand for LGBTQ rights during Pride Month to joining the fight for racial justice, Chloe has become a beacon of strength and a model for young women and artists.

Chloe released the first single from “when i feel better” this summer, entitled, “10 things,” a play on the classic ’90s rom-com. The gritty alt-pop take on a “friend breakup” landed her a coveted spot on Spotify’s New Music Friday and left media outlets hungry for more music from Chloe.

The release of “19” came next, leaving listeners with a powerful examination of the state of the world as Chloe navigates her own self-examination as a teenager in turbulent times. Ending with an exasperated sigh, the introspective track was featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered. Also, the song is featured on the mixtape as a new acoustic version, stripped-down, and revealing an elevated passion in her vocal performance.
Poignant storytelling has been a running theme of Chloe Lilac’s career thus far, first sparked by the release of her 2019 debut EP, Manic Pixie Dream. The project landed multiple placements on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ as well as coverage from major media outlets. Chloe’s original-yet-relatable anthems, undercut with unabashed confidence, continued on her following EP, DOUCHEBAG, released in 2020.
