Cloe Terare is an emerging singer and songwriter from Brisbane. The young talent grew up centrestage with a passion for performing and entertaining. Terare creates new sounds of electronic pop and uses darker emotional tones to reflect on the thoughtful lyrics and themes in her songs. Her recent single, Easy, was released following the success of her debut single, Take Me Home, which reached number one on the Indigenous Triple J Unearthed charts and number 18 on the Triple J Unearthed Top 100 charts.
Taking out the top prize at the QMusic Songwriting Retreat (formerly known as Amplify) with an entirely collaborate effort, Cloe co-wrote Easy with fellow electronic soul musician DVNA. The track explores the progression of feelings in a relationship – from those awkward first moments around someone new to feeling blissfully at ease. “It’s about being with people who you really connect with and realising connections shouldn’t be toxic or too painful,” said Terare. “All of my writing is a direct display of emotions we all feel and I hope people connect with them in their own way.”
For Terare, the track Easy came organically. “We wrote it on the side of a big lake in the most beautiful rain forest area, so whenever I sing it, I picture myself there. It’s been produced a few times, a few different ways but we decided it really sounds its most genuine and organic as the acoustic it was originally written as; so that’s how we are releasing it.”
With plenty of collaborations in the works, Cloe Terare shows no signs of slowing down.
