Coco & Clair Clair Align On New Album ‘Girl’

And share new single 'Aggy'...

Coco & Clair Clair will release new album ‘Girl’ on August 30th.

The Atlanta duo melt together rap tropes, club production, and alt-pop appeal, with their ‘Posh’ mixtape remaining a cult classic. 2022 album ‘Sexy’ saw the pair reach new heights, and it seems a follow-up is on the way.

New album ‘Girl’ is out on August 30th, with the pair opting to cast off self-doubt and simply enjoy their lives. Coco & Clair Clair comment:

“We’re singing about leaving our cares behind and having a good night. No worries and no drama, just some goodold-fashioned loving with your friends, your crush, your partner, whoever. What happened to having fun??”

The process took Coco & Clair Clair down some unexpected lanes, with the pair explaining:

“In the early stages of our writing process we had a running joke about being pregnant with a new album and how this one felt like a baby girl, whereas our last project, ‘SEXY’, felt more like a baby boy.”

“We were writing about our relationships, referencing and incorporating lyrics we had written years ago – lyrics previously put aside for being too vulnerable or confessional. We were experimenting with a style of production that felt more refined, polished, intentional, and intimate. We embraced the tension between that new approach and the characteristic qualities that propelled us early on: our resourcefulness, boastfulness, and flamboyance – all virtues of femininity and girlhood as much as they are tropes of masculinity.”

Name-checking some influences, Coco & Clair Clair cite the likes of Saint Etienne, Brandy, Everything but the Girl, Lana Del Rey, Club 8, Milky, and Madonna as shaping the sound of the album.

New single ‘Aggy’ is out now, and the digital background has a fun pop appeal, while the lyrics are an all-too-real appeal to stop the negative energy, and start partying.

Tune in now.
