Chloe Foy a Manchester-based singer, songwriter and folk artist drawing inspiration from a deep well of folk, psychedelia and classical music influences, to craft songs of carefully constructed arrangements that delicately compliment cryptic lyrics.
With a debut album in the pipeline, Foy’s latest single ‘Oh You Are Not Well’ is a stunning encapsulation of this sound and provides a perfect introduction to her delectable talents. This is beautiful, expansive, fragile and melodic folk, with ‘Oh You Are Not Well’ feeding off delicate yet intense atmospheres, backed with sweeping spectral tones, spurts of stomping but cushioned bass drum and rhythmic guitar strum. This exquisite textured sound is imbued with emotional sadness and honesty, resilience and defiance, creating an elegant yet intense atmosphere as with her strikingly beautiful voice, runs the gamut of shades too with bewitching results. ‘Oh You Are Not Well’ is exquisite, experimental and intense – it is simply stunning and will bend you to the power of its whim.
As mentioned earlier, a debut album in the offing, but before all that it is time to become acquainted with the engrossing splendour that is ‘Oh You Are Not Well’.
