Words matter. These are the best Clairo Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I bought this Oxygen midi synth from a flea market in Boston for $10. And then I found a cord in my house that fit it, and so I just started using that to do synth stuff in GarageBand.
My live show experience has not been good. It’s just because I haven’t had a band or anything. I played a show in Santa Ana that I’m just not proud of at all. It came out of the blue, and I kind of freaked out and took the opportunity because it was the biggest thing I’ve ever been offered.
I had moved around my whole life. That was the one thing that was always so hard.
We all kind of dreamed about being musicians, but the narrative around being a musician is it’ll never happen to you. It’s not something that just happens – one in a million shot – all those things that just make you feel like it’ll never happen.
YouTube was always a secret space for me. I’d randomly post videos of me singing with guitar, or sometimes I’d post some half-finished film projects I’d made.
I remember the first album I really completely geeked out over was The Shins’ ‘Wincing The Night Away.’ That album was everything to me.

I was like this weird, edgy 10-year-old. I was figuring out who I was, obviously at the worst time. I had braces and bangs, and it was a nightmare.
I never want to be one of those artists who feels untouchable and extraordinary. I have to be genuine.
‘Better’ is one of the first real steps I’ve made into ‘pop music,’ and this collab feels like a match made in Heaven!
It’s crazy to feel like you have to sell yourself and just, like, be almost… marketable. I’d never thought of it that way.
The fact that there has to be a man behind my success when I genuinely have worked so hard is frustrating.
I’m still not entirely sure how ‘Pretty Girl’ blew up the way it did. It wasn’t really meant to. The song was originally meant for a compilation tape for a magazine called ‘The Le Sigh’, and I made the video in about 30 minutes.
I’m still writing from personal experiences, which is what people connected with in the first place.
My stuff gets in a lot of vaporwave Facebook groups for some reason.
I’m a producer at heart.
At the end of the day, when people say, ‘Oh, she’s an industry plant,’ I’m like, ‘No, I just have representation, like every single other artist you listen to.’ I’m not the first person to get a manager.
I’ve always wanted to be a PC Music girl, like Hannah Diamond or SOPHIE.
