Set in a building steeped with history, we find Clara Mae performing a live version of her latest single, ‘Crash’. Pairing the bold patterns on an oversize blazer with the rosey lighting tones, we’re transported into a positive space of hope for the future and appreciation for the present, all highlighted by the elegant lyrics found within the single.
Clara Mae studied jazz vocals and piano in her small town of Gävle, Sweden where she grew up. Later, she would move to Stockholm, to pursue a career in music which she kick-started with her debut EP, Sorry For Writing All The Songs About You which has earned millions of streams. The singer would go on to tour in the US and Canada with Ella Vos as well as tour Europe with Canadian singer Carlie Hanson.
The stunning single ‘Crash’ was written by Clara Mae in collaboration with Cassandra Ströberg, Johan Lindbrant and Madelene Eliasson, who also produced the song. The song was mixed and mastered by Lars Norgen, who has previously worked with Tove Lo. While creating her own music, the singer calls upon the likes of Holly Humberstone, Troye Sivan and Kacey Musgraves for inspiration. In turn, her sound calls to mind the contemporary stylings of Halsey, Tove Lo, Sigrid and Astrid S.
“I think many people are scared to really let themselves fall head over heels in love with someone. It’s scary to be vulnerable. Will the happiness you feel right now be worth the pain if it ends? For me, yes. He will be the best I’ll ever have even if we crash.” – Clara Mae shares her thoughts on the single.
