Emerging artist Chloe Rodgers shares the serene new video for her single ‘Faces’

“Chloe Rodgers returns with glacial new alt-pop release ‘Faces’. The Nottingham riser made her mark with debut single ‘A Delphian Lullaby’, a truly creative piece of pop songwriting. New single ‘Faces’ spins her sound in a different direction, with its ethereal, electronic-laden production and breathless, whispered vocal. Out now, the zero-gravity project is an experiment in tone and subtlety, with Chloe moving between fond memories and bad. Somehow managing to execute the split between this, it’s an emphatic statement, one that underlines her blossoming creativity.” CLASH

“‘A Delphian Lullaby’ was a suitably regal introduction to Rodgers’ form of symphonic art pop. Her second single, ‘Faces,’ is similarly dramatic and stirring, with a subtle exploration of contrasting tones as Rodgers recounts both her best and worst days.” UNDER THE RADAR 

“Chloe Rodgers caused quite a buzz with her debut single “A Delphian Lullaby” , and seems set to increase that hum around her with new single “Faces”, which further expands the breadth of her sound.” BEATS PER MINUTE

“This brooding electronic cut from Chloe Rodgers proves that the Nottingham-based vocalist is one to watch. ‘Faces’ takes a range of influences that span from Radiohead’s Thom Yorke to megastar Billie Eilish, and you can find this eclectic mixture of sounds flowing within the track” – THE MOST RADICALIST

“Enchantingly expansive and packed with so much promise for the future, this ethereal odyssey from Nottingham-based Chloe Rodgers is something special indeed that demands your attention right from the off. The first thing that hits you is the celestial electronic atmospherics as her gorgeously whispered vocals remembers fond and bad memories. Beautifully orchestrated and cinematic in scope with added strings and horns, Faces is at its heart a masterpiece in intention and creativity. “


“Just two tracks into her young career, Chloe Rodgers is an artist that is drawing attention for her ethereal and atmospheric brand of pop, accented by the artist’s impossibly angelic voice. ‘A Delphian Lullaby’ and ‘Faces’ may, as of yet, be the only glimpses that we have into the artist, but they hint at a vast array of deeper ideas and talents that the artist possesses. There is an intangible, captivating quality to the artist’s sound. It feels immediately like an ocean that we have only really brushed the surface of. For all of its alluring aspects and spellbinding qualities of Chloe’s voice, there is almost an impending darkness that lurks above. The result makes for a sound and a project that sticks out as something to really keep an eye on and sink your teeth into.” CLOUT

With her work with collective Twenty Committee and her own solo material currently lapping up praise on the likes of CLASH, Clout and Record Of The Day since its release, Nottingham-based singer Chloe Rodgers has now returned to share the blissful new music video for her latest ethereal offering ‘Faces’.

Shot by Friction Collective alongside the creative direction of Anna Tiani, the visuals for ‘Faces’ looks to highlight the smooth and ambient appeal of the original material. Filmed amongst the simple beauty of nature, this new clip captures the raw and untethered direction that Rodgers places within all of her material to date, making for a truly bold and cinematic delight.

Speaking about the new video, creative director Anna Tiani said, “The motive behind creating this ethereal and cinematic music video for ‘Faces’ was to embrace the beauty of nature, passing time and Chloe’s mesmerising voice in order to create an artistic statement that would effortlessly teleport the listener into the contrasting light and dark worlds in which the song lives.”

While Chloe added, “Most of the filming for the music video was done on pretty much no sleep and that river was so cold that my feet were hurting!! But the team, Bonnie and her family all turned it into a gorgeous day nevertheless. Bonnie was a complete ray of sunshine, and a better actor than me even though she had never done anything like that before! I’m really happy with the results.”

Born and raised in Nottingham – a part of the United Kingdom that she still enjoys living in – Chloe is lucky enough to have the kind of disposition that makes you swoon at the impossibility of her existence within the confines of what it is to be a modern day pop star.

With influences that stretch from PJ Harvey to Billie Eilish, she notes Thom Yorke as her biggest inspiration, explaining “You know immediately that his lyrics have hidden depths,” she suggests, “but the deeper you dig, the further you are from getting to what they might mean.”

Chloe first came to public attention after accidentally winning Notts X Factor – she was interning at a local record label and was put up for an audition by her boss – which resulted in pecuniary financial advantage, a series of local gigs and a presence on YouTube that brought her to the attention of music producer and composer, Anders Källmark and Crowds And Power record label.

“She was so effortlessly talented”, says Källmark, “that we thought she must be performing a series of covers. But she wasn’t!” Kallmark subsequently included her as the main vocal component in Twenty Committee, an innovative, contemporaneous project featuring a rotating cast of songwriters and performers bearing a loose resemblance – at least in conception – to that ever-elusive, 1980s abstract phenomenon known as This Mortal Coil. “Chloe is absolutely integral to Twenty Committee and puts her own spin on everything we do together,” adds Källmark.

With a string of future releases at the ready, Chloe Rodgers looks to have a bright solo career on the horizon.
