Chloe StylerÂ is a fresh voice in country music. Since her appearance as a grand finalist on theÂ Toyota Star MakerÂ stage in 2020 sheâ€™s released a string of catchy pop country singles, each earning her high praise. The next in line,Â Vaguer Than Vegas, drops today ahead of her long awaited EP,Â ‘Side A’Â (available for pre order now).
Vaguer Than Vegas tells the light-hearted tale of a wannabe big shot.Â â€œThe song was written about people who put on a faÃ§ade of the â€˜perfect lifeâ€™ but, thereâ€™s nothing â€˜perfectâ€™ going on behind the scenes,â€Â tellsÂ Chloe.Â â€œWorking with the song title, we likened this to the glitz and glam of Las Vegas and the glamorous â€˜showâ€™ people put on when visiting the Las Vegas strip.â€
The QLD native wrote the bop withÂ Darlinghurstâ€™s Jason ReschÂ from VIC over Zoom – way back in 2019, before it was cool.Â â€œJason had the title floating around in his head for a while, so we rolled with it and two zoom sessions later the song was done!â€
Gritty electric guitar lines and a laid-back groove supportÂ Chloeâ€™sÂ dreamy vocal. It makes you feel as though youâ€™re cruising the California blacktop, engulfed by desert vistas on a trip to the casino mecca.
The songâ€™s entrancing blend of country and pop is the handiwork of producerÂ Andy Mak (Vera Blue,Â The McClymonts). Tracked betweenÂ The Grove StudiosÂ on the Central Coast and an Airbnb in Kingscliff,Â AndyÂ enlisted a live band to bringÂ Chloeâ€™sÂ vision to life. â€œTracking with a live band was a new experience for me and Iâ€™m so happy with how it turned out!â€
Vaguer Than VegasÂ is the fifth single released byÂ ChloeÂ since signing a distribution deal withÂ MGM Distribution. Her previous offering,Â Girlfriend, received multipleÂ Apple MusicÂ playlist additions and its video was added toÂ Foxtelâ€™s CMT. While her 2021 release, Consider Me Gone, earned a Top 40 finalist spot in theÂ Vanda and Young Global Songwriting Competition. ChloeÂ was also a finalist at theÂ Gold Coast Music AwardsÂ andÂ Queensland Music AwardsÂ in 2019.
Chloe is notable as a multi-instrumentalist (vocals, piano, guitar and sax) and festival favourite. With previous performances at the Deni Ute Muster, Country Rocks, Gympie Music Muster and the last four years of the Groundwater Country Music Festival (to list a few). Sheâ€™s graced the stage on the â€˜Sass and Rhinestonesâ€™ tour alongside Hayley Marsten, has opened for Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), Troy Cassar-Daley, Lee Kernaghan, and is fresh off the back of her support on the national tour with Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey.
Chloeâ€™sÂ brand of country music is unique and inventive, with nods to both classic and modern acts.Â Vaguer Than Vegas is the type of song that you can instantly fall in love with, yet continues to grow on you with each listen. Fans can expect to hear the new single andÂ Chloeâ€™sÂ new EP,Â ‘Side A’, in its entirety during her show atÂ The Junk BarÂ in Brisbane on Friday 25thÂ November.
