Claude is an existential dream pop project formed and fronted by songwriter Claudia Ferme. The poetic project arose during Ferme’s last year of college. Struck by the dread of an unknown future, she poured her soul into a series of indie jams that explore self-identity and ennui through experimental indie sounds.

Now signed to Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory label, Claud has released their debut album, “Super Monster”completing a journey from recording in a Syracuse dorm room to finishing the record at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in New York. 

The lyrics on “Super Monster” are culled from what Claud describes as experience being an “observer” of love, taking notes on the relationships around them. This is one of their strong suits, as Claud writes about romantic frustrations and heartbreak with the sense of clarity that one often applies when giving advice to a friend. Applying this to their own love life gives Claud’s lyrics an especially thoughtful quality.

“Call your phone you never answer/ Missing out on endless banter/ You’ve never been that good at small talk/ But I’d love to chat your ear off,” they admit on “Cuff Your Jeans”.

Sweet, ego-free and choc-full of sticky melodies, Super Monster proves that you can take the bedroom pop artist out of their bedroom, but that won’t change what made them worth paying attention to in the first place.
