Claud Give Us A Little Taste From Her Upcoming Debut Album ‘Super Monster‘ With New Single ‘Soft Spot’
Super Monster is a story of lost and found loves, self-discovery, and self-definition. Super Monster, finds their voice through life’s trials and twists. Like the best and most timeless superhero stories, Super Monster is a story of transcending being misunderstood, both in love and in life. It’s also one hell of a debut album.
Claud shares about the new track ‘Soft Spot,’ ‘… Sigh. I have a soft spot for lots of people, places, and things. This song is about knowing I can’t be with this one specific person, but my feelings won’t go away… I still hope I run into them, or they randomly text me about something. It’s just me romanticising what I can’t have and being like “but what if…”’
Her upcoming debut album ‘Super Monster’ is 13 songs of irresistible charm and a vertiginous but joyous coming-of-age reckoning with young love. A skilled lyricist with an extraordinary gift for writing infectious melodies, Claud sees relationships as games of endless wonder, intrigue, and second-guesses; a roller-coaster thrilling you, even when it’s terrifying.
Standing at 5 feet tall with green and blue hair (hair colour subject to change), 21-year old Claud Mintz is a prolific and industrious talent. The first signing to Phoebe Bridgers’ new label imprint with Dead Oceans, Claud has been stealthily releasing impressively agile pop songs for the last two years.
Upon finishing a long day at Electric Lady, the studio owner uncovered and shared an as-yet-unpublished drawing by the late, great Daniel Johnston depicting a person leaping triumphantly from the surrounding grass.
It was titled “Claud and the Super Monster” and, for Claud, the drawing and title depicted perfectly how the undefinable is often viewed as monstrous when it is in fact, freeing, even ascendant. Misunderstood, maybe, but also imbued with superpowers. The album’s working title was quickly usurped and the Super Monster was born.
