Nottingham’s alt-pop artist Chloe Rodgers shares the beautiful ode to her grandfather with the new single “Back to the Quay”. It’s a heartwarming dedication that might leave you a little teary, but that’s the evocative nature of Chloe’s songwriting. Her vocals carry the narrative across the sea of guitar strings and fluid melodies, all amalgamating into something much greater.
The visuals are intimate, like the song’s structure, and feels like a personal insight into someone’s journey with grief. The video sees Chloe at her rawest, a real testament to her character, “Back to the Quay” is an incredible cut that dwells in the flourishing alt-indie universe.
“We shot a number of videos on the same day, the one for ‘Back To The Quay’ is my favourite. I felt the most at ease with my guitar in my arms and it’s the song that means the most to me on the EP which is why it’s the title track. A lot of my friends only saw my papa once he had deteriorated and I wanted to put that little clip of him in it so that everyone could see a glimpse of the real person I wrote it about, even though that only shows a teensy part of how brilliant he was.”
