Rising Sydney-based songwriter CXLOE releases ‘Low Blow’, an expressive ode to vulnerabilities. The dark-pop talent is emerging as an exciting voice within a crowded genre, having surpassed 8 million streams on standout single ‘Show You’. The new offering is an endearingly open piece of songwriting, framed by a dynamic synth-driven production. The beat gallops towards a chorus that delivers a melodic punch, allowing enough space for the expansive vocal to come to the fore.
“‘Low Blow’ was written after a few personal encounters that left me feeling gutted, and unfairly hit below the belt, a tactic Hollywood is very familiar with. Especially in the music industry, you leave yourself vulnerable, and in this instance an easy target. I was left feeling dumbfounded and shocked. I was caught so off guard by this that my emotions made me come across as dramatic and as referred to in the lyrics as ‘psycho’.” She continues, “I channel this in the song and refer to a relationship where it’s one sided and only wanted on their terms. A low blow.”
