B O K E H
From Berlin, Germany, Chloë Lewer is the songwriter/actress behind the artist B O K E H. In 2017 she made her debut with her EP, Don’t Leave the Fire. In this project, B O K E H creates an ethereal soundscape of electronic sounds accompanied by jabbing drum rhythms. Apart from the dark electronic tones, Lewer offers a smooth and calm vocal, allowing her lyrics to pose questions and moments of reflection. There are songs like “Great Heights” where the lyrics question another character’s memory of the positive parts of their relationship. It feels anthemic but also pressed for a needed closure. Then there are songs like “Skeleton Woman” which closes the EP, leaving the listener with the weight and pressure brought from needing to move on from something good … but over. B O K E H, has true lyricism and an impressive ear for creating a soundscape that supports the songs. She is currently writing, working on new music and I am very excited to hear what the next chapter will be.
