Acclaimed pop artist Claud releases the first remix from their excellent debut album Super Monster. The irresistible “In Or In-Between” gets an exciting rework from artist Jesse (Jesse Rutherford of The Neighbourhood) and The Marías. Claud released Super Monster earlier this year and quickly sprang to global attention and an avalanche of critical praise and radio support for their crisp, hook-laden songwriting.
Standing at 5 feet tall with green and blue hair (hair color subject to change), 22-year old Claud Mintz is a prolific and industrious talent. The first signing to Phoebe Bridgers’ new label Saddest Factory Records, an imprint with Dead Oceans, Claud has been stealthily releasing impressively agile pop songs for the last few years.
Super Monster – released in February -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. From beginning to end, the sparkling tunes capture the assorted stages of a relationship’s delight and dejection – the giddy sensation of a first kiss, the heartsick longing of a pending rejection and the reluctant call for a requisite breakup.
