“Better Now” is a triumphant return and as the first taste of the Australian singer-songwriter’s debut album promises there’s more greatness to come.” – THE LINE OF BEST FIT, SONG OF THE DAY
“… a deliciously lilting folk jam, with a surprisingly gritty chorus” – FASTERLOUDER
“Honest beneath silken, vintage melodies and punctuated by lightning” – THE AUTUMN ROSES
“Twisting her elegant yet incisive vocal around each syllable, it’s endearing honest, and a wholesome progression of her style that saw her becomes one of 2015’s most exciting new acts.” – CRACK IN THE ROAD
“As always with the artist from Melbourne, the songwriting remains honest and poignant.” – HIGH CLOUDS
Better Now was written by Cloves over the course of a single day in London with her long-term writing collaborator Justin Parker (Banks, Lana Del Ray, Bat For Lashes) who will continue to work with the Melbourne native on her debut LP.
Fast becoming one of the country’s hottest upcoming artists, Cloves has been praised by BBC’s Annie Mac, touted as ‘the female Bon Iver’ by Noisey, seen as ‘enormous promise’ by clash.com and dubbed one of the ‘acts who are set to dominate in 2017’ by Fasterlouder.
With only one EP to her name to date, Cloves has enjoyed one of the best introductions to the world of music. In her live set-up where she continues to win new fans show-by-show, she has supported BRITs Male Solo Artist of The Year winner James Bay in the US and has performed at some of the biggest festivals on the planet including Coachella, Lollapalooza and the UK’s Latitude and British Summer Time festivals. Next month Cloves will perform on Thursday 9th February at the London venue set up by Mumford & Sons Ben Lovett, the Omeara.
Topping off last year, Cloves’ song “Don’t Forget About Me” was selected for a crucial spot in the film “Me Before You” starring Emilia Clarke which saw many new immediate fans pick her music up, mostly evident from strong numbers on Shazam, 40k record sales on iTunes and impressive early streaming numbers on Spotify (17m) and Vevo (5m).
