Claud - Super Monster
Mar 2, 2021

While this album sounds like it could have come out at any time in the last five years, Claud manages to have some sharp melodies and clever lyrics to keep the album feeling too stuck in the 2010s. Claud approaches gender as something relational that they can manipulate and change depending on the situation. This leads to some playful and personal music that manages to be humorous and heartfelt without losing the productive balance between the two. While embracing a variety of different sounds, the album has the simplistic, DIY feel that has become a distinct fingerprint of Bedroom Pop. While it does embody some of the elements that make that genre special (intimate, creative, personal pop songs), it can also feel repetitive and claustrophobic. It will be interesting to see how Claud's sound develops towards larger arrangements. Their ideas and lyrics are quite strong; the sound holds it back from feeling fully realized and developed.
