Maintaining unstoppable momentum this year, 18-year-old Southern California singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Rosinkranz serves up a new song entitled “123” via slowplay/Republic Records.
The track opens with a nostalgic swell of production as she croons, “I’m wasting your time, and by the way you’re a shitty dancer.” It kicks into a head-nodding bassline and glitchy beat as she exhales, “I just want to mess up what we had. Maybe you should listen to my dad.” The track showcases her seamless ability to shift back and forth between vibes effortlessly with style and substance.
It arrives on the heels of her pop punkified anthem “i’m too pretty for this.” The latter has already amassed over 1.2 million Spotify streams and counting. Inciting widespread critical applause, HYPBAE christened it “your new villain era anthem” and went on to hail it as “a relatable bop that literally everyone in a toxic relationship needs to hear.” OnesToWatch noted, “‘i’m too pretty for this’ sees her trading in butterflies for daggers as she moves on in enthralling fashion,” and Atwood Magazine raved, “the tune is a masterclass in cultivating self love.”
Since releasing her breakout debut “Backyard Boy,” Claire has steadily been building a diehard fanbase worldwide, racking up over 1 billion global streams and counting.
Next up, Claire hits the road with upcoming appearances at Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Life Is Beautiful and as direct support for Alec Benjamin on his The (UN)Commentary Tour. The dates with Alec Benjamin kick off on September 8 in Austin, TX at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater, visits major markets coast-to-coast, and concludes on October 16 at Arizona Federal Theatre in Phoenix, AZ.
