Sir Chloe is a band to keep your eyes and ears on.
With humble beginnings at Bennington College in 2018, Sir Chloe — Dana Foote (vocals/guitar), Teddy O’Mara (guitar/producer), and Palmer Foote (drummer)– have since landed in Brooklyn, New York. Not wasting any time, Dana and company have released four infectious tracks so far this year, all of which have me burning for more.
Animal, Sir Chloe’s debut recording, was the first track that reeled me in. A song that switches from sultry to springy to seething in a moment’s notice while spotlighting Dana’s effortless vocal abilities. Michelle has a similar smoldering tone as Dana continues to croon about relationship issues, this time a more lustful ode to monstrous femme fatale.
Walk You Home is a smoky, subtle song about sisterhood as Dana helps a stranger, who is obviously down and out, safely home. Too Close, the most recent release from the band, shows polish and more guitar pop sensibilities than earlier tracks.
There are glimmers of Courtney Barnett, Big Thief, Snail Mail, and Lucy Dacus, but comparisons are lazy and contrived. Sir Chloe is bubbling with breakout potential, especially considering Dana Foote’s range within folk, indie pop, and fuzzy rock.
