Single Review: Cloe Wilder – One Step Closer

Cloe Wilder is an indie-pop singer/songwriter and musician from Clearwater, Florida, and I’ve talked about them previously on the site, and you can check that out here. I’ve also talked with them too, and you can read my interview by clicking here. So I realized something when I began writing this review, that I have been covering Wilder’s music since someone from her agency reached out to me back in early 2019, and I could not be happier that I was correct in my assertion that they would continue to grow and develop as an artist, I could see even back then that they had phenomenal talent, and that as they matured time would only improve her. So here we are. Today I’ll be reviewing her single ‘One Step Closer’ which was released on the 22nd June 2022. 

‘One Step Closer’ opens with a delicate piano melody, and Wilder’s voice is sensational as always, as I said up top I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to see her grow as an artist and this track just proves how far she’s come because honestly her skill, her range, her soulful and impactful delivery are just breathtaking. This is a gentle track, an emotional one, but I really like the counterpoint of adding in just a little percussive depth, and mixing in the tight, guitar riff which all come together to add some texture and roughness to the otherwise sort of ambient melody. I really enjoyed this track, it lingers in the back of the mind and is just phenomenal.

So that’s what I thought of Cloe Wilder’s single ‘One Step Closer’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify. Make sure and support the artist by following them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
