SHARE LEAD SINGLE “CHERUB”
Atlanta duo Coco & Clair Clair announce their highly anticipated debut full-length album SEXY due November 4th. Along with the album’s announcement, Coco & Clair Clair share the lead single “Cherub.” Just under two minutes in length, the track showcases Coco’s cheeky rapping skills and Clair Clair’s earworm melodies laced together with a playful and bass-heavy beat.
Coco & Clair Clair are used to being misjudged at first glance, but the 13 tracks of SEXY put forth their most authentic selves yet. “We both really wanted to show our capabilities,” Clair said regarding the new project, “Some songs, Coco raps so fast, which she’s never done before. And some of the songs, I actually try to sing or I just talk. It was important to us that we tried new things and showcased what we can do. It’s still very much us, but it’s new and fresh.” SEXY includes collaborations with artists from around the globe including NYC-based Porches, Germany’s DEELA, New Zealand’s Marjorie Sinclair and Lagos-based DETO BLACK. The album also features production from TVGirl on the track “8 AM.”
To celebrate the release of SEXY, Coco & Clair Clair will perform three record release shows this November in Los Angeles, New York City and Atlanta.
Growing up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Coco and Clair Clair’s respective skill sets were on display from early ages. Coco was an only child, so she turned toward the internet to find her community and ultimately found an outlet for self-expression: “I didn’t have anyone to vibe with at home, so I would just vibe online a lot, and I got into music through MySpace. I would make music videos for friends, and then I started making beats.” Clair notes she, “always wanted to be a singer but I don’t think I ever thought I would actually be one.” Her natural love for music was aided by her father. “I learned a lot about music through my dad driving me to school,” she says. “He would always play me music in the car that I had never heard.”
In 2017, Coco & Clair Clair decided to record, mix, and self-release the seven-track project POSH before Clair left Atlanta for New York City — to at least get their music out into the world because they weren’t sure the next time they’d be together to make more. The confident, eclectic single “Pretty” took off, introducing their tongue-in-cheek lyricism and multi-layered soundscapes. “Pretty” boasts over 60 million Spotify streams to date. But it wasn’t until May 2019, when they were flown to Santa Ana, Calif., to perform with Cowgirl Clue that they realized they were becoming career musicians.
Since then, their momentum has been gradual and undeniable. Catchy singles such as December 2020’s “Pop Star” reinforced why fans fell in love with them in the first place and they’ve performed recent festival sets at Lollapalooza and Osheaga.
