Chloe Juliette Beswick releases her debut EP ‘Seven Sewers Away’ through Philophobia Music on 25th March. If you trying to place Chloe Juliette Beswick there’re good reasons, she was formally a member of fondly remembered Wakefield indie-pop band Chat Noir. At first listen, I was thinking of describing the EP was sounding more akin to fellow Yorkshire outfit The Lovely Eggs only lo-fi, but that is well wide of the mark, only vocal freedoms and heaps of style are common to both on reflection.
On her debut solo EP she displays form from the outset with powerful slices of lo-fi, indie with a touch of experimental, from the outset the sound is more straight-forward musical trappings raised by character driven vocals by Chloe Juliette Beswick. Any pop leanings of the past seem further away, but with bias, a good move as the two track EP, will last a lot longer in my memory. The two track EP’s is off-kilter, in fact affiliation to any kind of boundary seem less important, through isolated riffs, broken mantras, spaces through to repetition ‘Seven Sewers’ and ‘Drippy Strawberry Sauce’ both work in different ways, but judge for yourself below. Put simply – more please. 8.3/10
