Claud, is the first signee to Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory label, releases their debut album, “Super Monster”, in February, and the latest single is “Cuff Your Jeans,” which Claud says “is a song about yearning. I wrote it after having a fever dream about trying to get on a train to see my friend but missing it over and over and over because there was always some obstacle in my way. The dream left me in a cold sweat and extremely frustrated. All elements of this song are a much needed form of rebellion against my redundant lifestyle, and my pitched down vocals in the verses – which appear in a few more places throughout Super Monster – are a way to further a more courageous and outspoken persona.”

In 2021 is there more valuable indie-pop currency than a Phoebe Bridgers co-sign? Claud is the first artist signed to her Saddest Factory imprint and their debut single Gold displayed the sort of songwriting savvy that can make serious waves. Landing somewhere between the twee indie of those classic early Shins records and a hyper-current playful pop sensibility, Claud has the raw materials to step out from beneath the Bridgers banner soon enough. New album ‘Super Monster’ is out in February.

“Cuff Your Jeans” the new song by Claud from the album ‘Super Monster’, out Feburary 12th on Saddest Factory Records.
