Alongside Sam Smith, Banks, Sampha and John Newman, Chlöe Howl is the latest British act tipped to break big stateside. Just this year, the singer/songwriter was named a finalist in both the BRIT Awards Critics' Choice and BBC Sound of 2014.
Howl also saw her single "Rumour" (below) make waves throughout Europe. It's all helped garner major anticipation for the 19-year-old's eponymous debut album dropping later this year. To show our excitement, we're having Howl take over Fuse's channel: We'll be playing videos and exclusive interviews with her all this week.
Howl told Fuse what's she learned in the three years she spent recording her full-length. "You got to have a lot of balls," she says. "I got signed when I was 16 so I had no idea what was going on at all or how anything worked. Now that I've got my footing, you've got to kick a bit of ass every now and then. And I realized I can! I'm quite fiery when I need to be."
Watch the full interview above to find out more about this firecracker's creative process, then take a listen to her slick, synth-pop single "Rumour" below. Tune in to Fuse all week to see even more.
