Claud‘s sophomore album Supermodels is coming out July 14 on Saddest Factory, the indie-pop artist’s second full-length release of Phoebe Bridgers‘ label. Ahead of a big tour beginning June 20 with dates opening for Bridgers’ band boygenius and a reunited Le Tigre, Claud is releasing “Wet” and “Crumbs,” two new songs from the upcoming project.


The new tracks are evocative indicators of Claud’s range. “Wet” is a glossy synth-pop with gossamer threads of the indietronica era running through it — in a nod to the energy, Claud says in a press statement that the song “was written in one fast sitting, the writing process as kinetic as the outcome.” If “Wet” is the dancefloor track, “Crumbs” is the song recorded if Claud decided to stay at home, too overwhelmed to see anyone and finding solace in gentle, Elliot Smith-indebted melodies. “Writing both of these songs felt like dropping a boulder into a pond,” they write, “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.”
