Claud Shares Two New Songs: “Wet” and “Crumbs”

Singer-songwriter Claud (who uses they/them pronouns) has graduated from writing bedroom pop songs within the confines of their childhood room, to now embodying their own space on their own terms. They have shared two new songs, “Wet” and “Crumbs,” both a part of their upcoming sophomore album, Supermodels, set to release via Saddest Factory on July 14. Check out the songs below, followed by Claud’s upcoming tour dates.

Claud is set to support boygenius on tour on June 21 and 22 and Le Tigre on July 9. After, they’re performing on their own headlining tour, Supermodels Tour Part One, starting July 21 in Bristol, UK and ending October 10 in San Francisco.

Claud shares that “Crumbs” was a result of a few tearful days inside while “Wet” was written in one quick setting. “Writing both of these songs felt like dropping a boulder into a pond, really shaking up the way I look at myself as an artist. My hands tremble when I play these songs for people, which means I’ve accessed a new vulnerability in my songwriting that I hadn’t gotten to before,” they say in a press release.

Supermodels was brought to live on an acoustic guitar and a second-hand upright piano crammed into Claud’s apartment in lieu of hardships that took the form of loss and isolation. According to Claud, each song is a journal entry, “threaded together with scant regard for genre.”

Previous releases by Claud include the Supermodel single, “Every Fucking Time” and their 2021 debut album, Super Monster.
