Groupie", released earlier this year. Written by Chløë herself and produced in collaboration with songwriting and production team TMS, the same hit-making team behind G-Eazy + Bebe Rexha's "Me, Myself & I", Jess Glynne's "Don't Be So Hard On Yourself" and Professor Green's "Read All About It", among many others, "Death Proof" is an ode to hedonism and the wildness of youth.
Speaking on the track, Chløë says:
"Though there are certain parallels between the song and it's namesake (the 2007 Quentin Tarantino film) this particular 'Death Proof' has no obvious villain. It is a song about jubilant self destruction, a song that captures the 'fuck it' moments of youth borne from boredom, depression or simple naïveté.
There have been many studies regarding the fact that teenagers take more risks with their lives than children or adults. Scholars can't seem to agree on why this is or what evolutionary purpose it serves but most tend to view this as a negative side of youth. I find that there’s a certain beauty in recklessness if you happen to survive it. So far so good."
