Bittersweet Tunes by Bitter's Kiss

Ever needed a song to listen to when you're reminiscing on old times? Try Bitter's Kiss. Bitter's Kiss seems to be a fitting name for the young artist, Chloe Baker. Although Baker is only 15 years old, her songs speak beyond her years.

Her beautiful, ethereal vocals hit your heart strings. The self-titled album leaves you feeling a bit melancholy, focusing on human hardships. "Bitter's Kiss is a name I came up with when I started putting songs on SoundCloud. I wanted something to describe the message that could also allow for me to form a band under that name," Chloe Baker said.  "It's come to refer to me..."

Baker has an angelic, soulful voice kind of reminiscent of Melanie Martinez, which I have to admit is one of the reasons why I was initially drawn to Bitter's Kiss. Her sound is beautiful & clear. The music has a bit of sad vibe to it, something in the way of Lana Del Rey. It's the kind of thing I could see myself listening to on a rainy day or when I'm in a bit of a funk.

"Love Won't Make You Cry" is one of my favorite songs & I'm not the only one who thinks so. The song has over 500,000 plays on SoundCloud, which is considerably more than any of her other tracks. The song has a warm acoustic guitar, a soft piano, & sparse percussion. With her catchy tunes, it's hard to believe she remains an unsigned artist. But not for long, well that's it I believe anyway.

What's next for the young artist? "Next step I hope is more writing, performing, & release of a new EP & videos. I'm going to do some showcases in L.A. & Nashville soon," Baker said.

What do you think of Bitter's Kiss? Do you enjoy her music? Which song is your fave? :]

  4. Oh goodness, I had no idea who Bitter's Kiss is before this post, but I've just given her title track a listen, and i'm in love! Her angelic voice against her stunning, sometimes sombre lyrics is absolutely gorgeous. She reminds me of a rawer version of Lianne La Havas and a saner version of Rebecca Spektor, soul, a lil bit of country. I can't believe she's unsigned! An indie label better discover her and sign her up soon because I'd get her album in a jiffy! (XL Recordings, I'm looking right at you.)
