Only few artists have had such a meteoric rise in recognition as the twenty year old bedroom pop singer Clairo. In the past few months, Clairo has gone from an underground singer to a lo-fi pop sensation with millions of views on YouTube and thousands of followers on social media.
Clairo’s music is perfect precisely because it doesn’t go with anything: it’s sweet pop with guitars instead of bedroom electronic beats; it’s young and fresh without falling into urban clichés; it’s new but it makes you feel at home.
Despite forming less than a year ago, Wallows members Braeden Lemasters, Dylan Minnette and Cole Preston have been playing music together for nearly a decade.
