Singer-songwriter Jonny Ong has dropped his new single ‘Chloe’ following previous tracks ‘Fools’ and Isolation. With the rhythmic bass and percussion, the intro sounds like a John Barry film score for a film such as The Ipcress File or Funeral In Berlin which starred Sir Michael Caine as the no-nonsense secret agent Harry Palmer.
Everything from the instrumentation to the lyrics -- simply brilliant! It takes you on a real journey and you can feel the emotion behind the story. This is staying on repeat!
Have been following Jonny Ong since his release of Visions of the Aquatic. From enchanting handpans, crooning and soaring trumpets to electronic breakdowns and the track ending with an atmospheric soundscape, accompanied by subtle, rhythmic tabla in the background. ‘Chloe’ captures Jonny’s love & appreciation for different genres of music. 💟☮️
Chloe combines a mix of rock, jazz and electronic music. The soothing beginning of the song draws you in after which your ears are greeted with the sweet melody of the horns. The song is written about chloe and we may have all encountered a chloe in our lives. With its distinct layers of melodies, the song is a joy to listen to. A song written with strong emotions yet made light on the heart with the immaculately planned music blend. Great work Jonny.
