Rising Australian pop singer CXLOE releases her brand new single ‘I Can’t Have Nice Things’. The track is a playful take on self-sabotage in relationships – filled with upbeat synths and a danceable bass line, all intertwined with the pop newcomer’s exceptional vocals.
‘I Can’t Have Nice Things’ is the Sydney-born dark pop singer’s first release of 2019. It was written by CXLOE, J Kash (Maroon 5, Charlie Puth) and Oscar Sikow, who also produced it with Andrew Wells (Meghan Trainor). The track not only proves CXLOE’s vocal prowess but her capabilities as a talented lyricist as well with open, raw lyrics that tell of self-reflection and vulnerability.
Of the track, CXLOE says:
“‘I Can’t Have Nice Things’ is an unfortunate mantra I’ve found myself living by… I drew a lot of melodic inspiration from Joni Mitchell. You could say it’s my inner child speaking through my adult self. I always seem to find a way to sabotage things that mean the most to me like relationships, family, friends, and career. It’s a valuable lesson that I can’t have nice things.”
‘I Can’t Have Nice Things’ follows up CXLOE’s 2018 track ‘Show You’, an instantly catchy electro-pop song that she wrote with Max Farrar and Maroon 5’s Sam Farrar. ‘Show You’, which Clash deemed as ‘a killer return, underlining just how precocious CXLOE really is’, has reached nearly seven million streams on Spotify and counting.
Following today’s release, CXLOE will join Maroon 5 on their Australian arena tour. Full dates can be found below with tickets available at www.cxloe.com
