Despite it being a staple piece all year round, your skin can be one of the most uncomfortable outfits in your wardrobe. At times feeling too tight, slack in all the wrong places, or simply feeling like a foreign object altogether, our own skin is the one thing we can’t fix with a quick trip to the tailor or sizing down or up. It’s a sentiment that drives Claud’s latest sun-soaked effort “Go Home!,” as the rising star searches for a sense of comfort.
“Go Home!” follows the release of the indie-pop artist’s lauded 2021 debut album, Super Monster, released via Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory Records. The new single sees Claud conveying an all-too-familiar of “wanting to be anywhere but here” against an uptempo backdrop perfect for listless summer days. It’s an unlikely juxtaposition that makes the most of Claud’s candid songwriting, which unfurls with all the poignant honesty of Courtney Barnett and wit of the best of their Gen Z peers.
If you’ve ever had to sit through someone spout esoteric philosophy at a party or simply yearned for the warmth of your own bed, you’ll likely find a kindred spirit in Claud’s latest effort. In their own words, “‘Go Home!’ is about falling into that hole of feeling awkward and uncomfortable in your own skin that all you crave is going home and sliding into whatever is familiar.”
