Playlist: Chloe Lilac

17-year-old Brooklyn native and singer-songwriter, Chloe Lilac, shares an exclusively curated playlist for EUPHORIA on her greatest influences in celebration of the release of her debut EP.

“Manic Pixie Dream [EP] was all about growing up and coming into my own as a young woman. These were the songs and artists that really inspired me throughout me writing the EP.”

1) Hole – Celebrity Skin

This song really inspired my song “Summer.” It’s such a fun, energetic song, and I was really inspired by that energy.

2) Car Seat Headrest – Fill In The Blank 

I also love the energy in this song! It reminds me of being a teenager, this whole album is a coming of age teen soundtrack.

 3) Nothing But Thieves –  If I Get High

This song really inspired “Jesus Couldn’t Love Me.” It really touched me in a way I couldn’t describe. 

 4) Lauryn Hill – Doo-Wop (That Thing)

This song and Lauryn Hill in general sonically, is a huge inspiration to me.

5) Lil Uzi Vert – XO Tour Llif3

This was a song I listened to wayyyy too much when I was 15. This EP’s really about that time in my life, and it just really reminds me of sophomore year.

 6) Jakob Ogawa – Velvet Light

Velvet light is such an inspiring track for me from the progression to the production to the lyrics. A bedroom pop masterpiece.

7) Lana Del Rey – Video Games

I’d say Lana Del Rey is one of my biggest inspirations. Video Games makes me cry every time I listen to it.

8) The Cardigans – Lovefool

Again, a song I used to listen to all of the time, and really reminds me of the desperation of a high school crush.

9) Coldplay – Fix You

This is such a classic. This song also really inspired “Jesus Couldn’t Love Me.”

10) Paramore – The Only Exception

This song gives me crazy nostalgia.
