Montreal rising star Claudia Bouvette returns with her brand new single “BBZ“, her first single via Bonsound
The singer-songwriter who’s been active in the Quebec cultural landscape for over a decade recently announced her signing to the Montreal-based record label. Blending electro-pop to funk-rock, and sometimes dabbling in trap music, Claudia offers a complete and unique musical spectrum, one in which she is ready to welcome you.
Am I crazy to want your babies?, she sings repeatedly in the chorus. Exaggerated and intense, the Montreal-based artist felt that this phrase perfectly expressed how blindly lustful you can be when you want what you can’t have, just like the relationship she refers to in her song. The accompanying music video echoes the lyrics, as we see Claudia allowing herself to get carried away by her feelings, in a dreamlike context that evokes wanderlust. Directed by Léa Taillefer, the ethereal images of Claudia, her friends, and her environment transport us right into the heart of her story.
The new single was co-written by Claudia, David Charles Fisher (DCF), and Connor Seidel (Charlotte Cardin, Ralph) in an apartment in Toronto, BBZ weirdly came together with just bass and vocals, writing to the main bass riff. After producing a handful of different versions, the track finally took shape when drummer Max Bellavance (Chiiild, The Brooks) comedically played a double-time Warped Tour-aspiring punk groove over the reggae-esque bassline.
Doubled with guitars and synths that are voluntarily out of tune, and covered with obnoxiously autotuned back vocal layers, Claudia plays into the irony of the lyrics with a sarcastic take on punk attitude that’ll seduce her listeners.
