Toast is the living breathing music project of Claudia Mintz and frendz

Recorded out of our dorm rooms at Syracuse University, “Onetwothree” came together seamlessly. Josh and I (Claudia) have been best friends since our first day of college, so not only does he understand me as a person, he understands my writing and knows exactly how to compliment it with production. We work really well together. We’re a perfect musical match.

The song is dedicated to this very precarious time in our lives- moving out of our childhood homes and the start of college, where everything is a ‘first.’ The lyrics came out of me (Claud) immediately after hearing the track that Josh sent me. “Onetwothree” basically became our anthem for the rest of the semester. It’s about figuring out how to cope with feeling like you’re being misunderstood or not heard. As a queer person, I deal with this a lot, especially at such a big university. It’s so difficult to find your voice.

Josh and I met Max at a Sassy 009 show this past spring at SXSW. We definitely had the same music taste and started chatting. It all felt very natural, and Max immediately understood Toast and really believed in us from the start… We’re extremely thankful to be working with Terrible Records; some of our biggest influences have been/are artists on Terrible and has allowed us feel to feel like we can be honest and free with our art.

Everything and anything that has to do with Toast has been a dream so far. Josh and I have been releasing and performing music separately since we were both really young, but as soon as we started working together everything clicked. We are just having So much fun with it and are so ready to share with anyone who will listen.

Released August 3rd, 2018
