New Music: Clairo “I Haven’t Left My Bed Yet”

It’s not really the words that Clairo omits in her twice repeated verse, but rather the way she effectively communicates that using more words just wouldn’t be necessary. Over simple percussion and tasteful casio chords, I Haven’t Left My Bed Yet conveys beautifully a feeling of not being able to describe why you feel the way you do - looking for an explanation in simply a lack of motivation ‘maybe I didn’t try?’, or perhaps a deeper anxiety ‘maybe you just wanna see me cry?’. I won’t try to overanalyse the track (or assume that’s what Clairo meant), but this one really effectively got me right back in those post-uni feelings. It’s incredibly honest - and devastatingly touching.
