American singer-songwriter Claire Elizabeth Cottrill known professionally as Clairo has released her new single, “Amoeba.”
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised in Carlisle, Massachusetts, Clairo began posting music on the internet at age 13.
Clairo rose to prominence following the viral success of the music video for her lo-fi single “Pretty Girl” in 2017. She subsequently signed a record deal, releasing her debut EP Diary 001 (2018) with Fader Label.
Clairo’s debut studio album Immunity (2019) received critical acclaim and spawned the singles “Bags” and “Sofia”, the latter of which became her first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. Cottrill’s second studio album, Sling, was released in 2021. Upon its release, the album received critical acclaim and saw commercial success, debuting in the top 20 of the US Billboard 200.
Clairo recalled that the Shins’ Wincing the Night Away was the first album she “really completely geeked out over”, crediting it as her inspiration to make music. Based on the fact that many around her told her that a career in music was unlikely, she did not consider it a likely prospect and musically “kind of did whatever” she wanted.
