Official debut from Syracuse University student Claire Cottrill aka Clairo. The term “bedroom pop” is getting thrown around more and more, but unlike the slew of studio artists chasing a certain reverse-engineered false intimacy, Cottrill's bedroom pop is borne out of necessity. And now that her music has transcended Soundcloud and YouTube and is a real thing you can hold in your hands, she’s elevating her sound and poised to make a bigger statement. Diary 001 includes “Pretty Girl,” her breakthrough song about “a relationship I had and how I felt like I needed to be a pretty girl for someone else. I felt like I needed to change a lot about who I actually was to be perfect for them instead of just being who I am genuinely,” plus five new songs that most college sophomores can relate to: “Flaming Hot Cheetohs,” “Boy Of My Dreams,” etc. Diary 001 is a solo affair, save for one track helmed by Danny L Harle, also features Irish rapper Rejjie Snow on “Hello.”
