Every Tuesday needs to start with something fresh, something gritty and something with an F bomb in it to wake you up. Chlöe Howl has been making a stir online over the past month or so, and attention is the very thing that she’s been getting, and it’s mostly down to her cockney tinged ‘No Strings’, that we’ve all come to love due to the sassy likes of Kate Nash, Lily Allen and even Adele.

The recoiling beats smashed together with Howl’s addictive vocals, juddering synths make a playful piece that’s dripping ‘instant hit’. The rippling bass is enveloped in frisky lyrics and dense layers of laughing melodies, lacing musical subtleties behind her volcanic vocals.

LISTEN // Chlöe Howl - 'No Strings'



The track has a bit more depth to it than that, the social commentary and the empowering nature to the one night stand is refreshing and rather attractive. More often than not we associate on night stands with women being left with more than she’s asked for, whether it’s emotional torment, to an STD or even with child. The male counterpart could, if he wishes, walk away, not saying they all do, but they seem to have a bit freedom on the matter. Howl challenges these concepts and social expectations with lyrics like “Fuck your no strings… no strings I kinda hope I have twins, c’mon am I imagining something?” packing an almighty punch and proves that Chlöe Howl is drenched in playful prowess.

I’m already gagging for more Howl, I hope it’s not too long before she gives us more tunes to quench our thirsts!
