She heralded the project with her most recent single “Boy In A Billion.” In a week, it has already amassed over 1 million total streams. Attracting critical praise, The Honey Pop fittingly described Claire as “what’s next in pop music.” In addition to plugs from DORK and more, Clash raved the track “underlines her alt-pop prowess.” The project also boasts “Frankenstein,” which has reeled in 6 million streams and counting.
The EP could double as the ultimate Gen Z teen flick with the star as its narrator. The opener “Hotel” glides on a bouncy beat wrapped in sunny guitar as she details the art of sneaking out (without getting caught) and promises, “One day I’ll write a story that’ll sit on a shelf about partying with my friends at some random hotel.” On the opening track, Claire says, “I wrote this song about the feeling of sneaking out, partying with friends, driving fast and eating pasta.”
Her voice seesaws over a sparse riff on “Pretty Little Things” as she laments with a soft croon, “All these pretty little things in life we have to learn to ignore.” Everything culminates on the jazz-y feels of “LAX.” Her powerful delivery echoes in tandem with a bold horn section on one last crescendo.

Claire definitely asserts herself as one of a billion and a new kind of pop outlier! Stay tuned for more soon.
