CXLOE took to Twitter this morning to thank everyone for tuning in, saying, “Aussies punch well above their weight, so honoured to be a part of this show.”

The Sydneysider recently released her second single of this year, titled ‘One and Lonely’. She explained the track is about loneliness and the difficulties of spending “majority of the year” away from her partner.

“This song talks about the endless flights and sleepless nights away from each other and how heavy this feeling is. I know I can be too much sometimes, and this song touches on these elements of push and pull that I put my partner through.

“‘You’ll always be my One and Lonely’ is probably one of my favourite lines off the whole EP. It captures love and sadness in a matter of words.”


Other acts on the season finale of The Sound included Tones And I, Guy Sebastian, Bliss N Eso and Josh Teskey. Electric Fields also teamed up with John Butler, Missy Higgins and Jessica Mauboy to virtually cover Paul Kelly and Kev Carmody’s ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’.
