Alt-Pop’s Chloe Star Is Defiant and Triumphant on “Happy Place”
Rising alt-pop act Chloe Star returns with her new single, “Happy Place,” out on all streaming platforms.
Bold, evocative, openly queer, and a fierce advocate for female empowerment, Chloe Star is the definition of a modern day rockstar. Her music is equally defiant, shamelessly blending elements of pop, rock, punk and hip-hop into a catchy sound that is wholly her own.
Following “Fool” and “Found My Peace,” her new electrifying single, “Happy Place,” is the third in her trilogy of confessional tracks that explore lingering effects of a toxic relationship: “I tell a story with these 3 songs — the heartbreak, the awakening, and the release,” she says.
“Fool” details the breakdown of the relationship, “Found My Peace” sees Chloe emerging from the ashes of heartbreak, and, finally, “Happy Place” is about finding freedom in healing. “‘Happy Place’ is about that feeling of relief that you experience when you finally feel comfortable being on your own,” says Chloe. “That’s ‘Happy Place.'”
The track is nothing short of triumphant. Chloe is a genuinely exciting discovery both lyrically and sonically, with a unique sound in the midst of a genre that can veer into in a pretty uniform state. “Happy Place” is absolutely made to be put on repeat and I’m looking forward to watching Chloe continue to make her mark.
