Review: "Bluff" - Chloe Sautereau

Chloe Sautereau's latest single, "Bluff", tells the story of carrying the burdens of an unresolved past relationship. It expresses the slow-burn emotional journey of getting over someone when you never had closure. Romantic or not, I feel like we've all experienced a similar loss. It could be days, weeks, months, or even years later, and you're still left wondering why it didn't work out. Until one day, you realize it's no longer worth the stress. "Bluff", is about finding that peace after all that time. Sautereau passionately sings about the mistakes she's made and the tricks she's fallen for, but she does so with radiant confidence. This song views the past as a lesson, not a lament. It's a solemn reminder that when we're knocked down, we can always get back up with grace. We can always move forward.

Musically, "Bluff", reminds me of the late 90s/early 00s songs I used to listen to as a little girl. Sautereau gives the same energy as the strong, solo female artists I and so many others used to look up to. The strong vocals and meaningful lyrics provide that genuine connection that artists like Alanis Morisette and Natasha Bedingfield give to their listeners. You can feel the emotion and the story as if you were sitting face to face and having a conversation with a trusted friend.  And a song like this doesn't need a ton of instruments to tell its story. The driving acoustic guitar carries us the whole way through with just a hint of steady drums. It's the perfect balance of strength and vulnerability.

Chloe Sautereau is a Swiss-born and raised musician who specializes in unapologetic, honest storytelling. She debuted in 2019 with her first EP, "As I Keep On Dreaming" under a stage name, Cee. She would soon move to New York, honing her craft in 2021 and 2022 by releasing two more singles, "Conversation Hearts", and "What If" under a new alias, sautereau. She has gone on to release several other singles under her full name, Chloe Sautereau, including, "Bluff" on April 12, 2024. Overall, it's easy to notice Sautereau as a powerful singer and songwriter with immense potential. I was blown away by this new track and I definitely recommend giving it a listen. You can hear, "Bluff" now on Spotify and all major streaming platforms.
