Chloe Howl is properly ripe for mischief. I have no doubt this girl is going to become a tabloid fixture very soon.

Just look at that face.

I was lucky enough to go to Columbia this week to hear some of Chloe’s forthcoming stuff. She was signed when she was 16 and brought to the label’s attention by someone from Republica who is now her manager (not Saffron!) Since then she’s been in the studio with the likes of Eg White and generally done some growing up into an incredibly confident young woman.

She’s definitely got a touch of the Kate Nash & Lily Allen about her but I love that. Kate’s first album was such a girly listen, full of tales of friendship and things going ‘shit’ and Chloe has that same totally ‘one of us’ vibe about her. Girls will love her, boys will want her. Total win.

Very exciting. She’s rehearsing with a live band now and things will begin properly happening I think around May time. For now, download her ‘Rumour’ EP for free right now. It’s brilliant.
