“Someone’s Calling” by Chlöe

The inspiration behind Chlöe sampling Louis Armstrong’s “Chloe (Song of the Swamp)” into “Someone’s Calling” is her grandfather, as he used to sing it to her while she was a little girl. The original lyrics follow the story of a man searching and calling out for his lover, Chloe.

In Chlöe’s take, she gives it a more enhanced and darker feel with her overlaying her vocals on the original track. It feels almost as if she’s luring someone (or herself) into a spell. Many fans have also said that the track exudes a Disney vibe, in particular Snow White and Cinderella, when the witch and stepsisters were calling for them respectively. 

Someone’s calling, no reply
Nightshade’s falling, hear him sigh (Ah)”
