From college to a career in music – Sir Chloe in Budapest for the first time Sir Chloe originally came together for a college thesis, and now Dana Foote’s band has grown into a successful band. The American Sir Chloe has conquered TikTok with their melancholic indie-pop, and on 26th June we can see their first Hungarian show at the Akvárium Klub.
Sir Chloe is a project that was formed just five years ago, and the band’s story began in a rather unusual way. The band’s lead singer, Dana Foote, first learned to play the flute and trumpet, then went to a music college in Vermont where students performed concerts instead of thesis work as seniors.
For one such occasion, Dana put together a performance that became Sir Chloe. Dana’s brother Palmer Foote was behind the drums, Emma Welch on bass, Teddy O’Mara on guitar and Austin Holmes on keyboards. Musically, they place themselves somewhere between alternative garage rock and dark pop, but they like to define what they do as simply guitar-based music. In terms of atmosphere, they are considered by experts to bring a completely authentic indie, indie-pop sound that became popular in the mid-twenties, and their melancholic, depressive lyrics, reminiscent of the nineties, already feel timeless.
Listening to Sir Chloe is like finding a cassette in the bottom of a drawer that your uncle gave you in 1992, but you forgot about it, and now you have the chance to listen to it for the first time, unwrapped from its original packaging.
They cite that they get inspirations from bands such as The Velvet Underground, The Pixies, Bikini Kill and Courtney Barnett and despite being best known on TikTok for their songs ‘Animal’ and ‘Michelle’, they are more along the classic lines of bands who just want to write music and tour without all the star power and frills. Their debut album ‘Party Favors’ was released in 2020, and since then they have been releasing new songs one by one, with the latest one ‘Hooves’coming out soon.
Sir Chloe’s music is reminiscent of the indie revolution that started on Myspace, you’ll know why you shouldn’t miss the band’s first Budapest show, and if you’re new to all this, you should immerse yourself in their music on 26th June at Akvárium Klub.
