Gen Z singer-songwriter Claire Rosinkranz has been making a name for herself first with her 202 breakthrough single “Backyard Boy” and her latest song “123.”
Claire soon goes on tour, and she performs in DC at Howard Theatre on Monday, Feb. 13.
The Southern California singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist most recently served up a new song titled “123” via slowplay/Republic Records.
The track opens with a nostalgic swell of production as she croons, “I’m wasting your time, and by the way you’re a shitty dancer.” It kicks into a head-nodding bassline and glitchy beat as she exhales, “I just want to mess up what we had. Maybe you should listen to my dad.” The track showcases her seamless ability to shift back and forth between vibes effortlessly with style and substance.

Southern California singer, songwriter, ballerina, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Rosinkranz grafts the Gen-Z coming-of-age experience onto quirky DIY soundscapes often cooked up by her dad in the garage.
Within a year, the 17-year-old phenomenon has received widespread acclaim courtesy of Rolling Stone, Variety, Coup de Main, Buzzfeed, Genius, and more. OnesToWatch championed her as one of its “Top Artists To Watch in 2021,” while New York Times and Billboard named her breakout anthem “Backyard Boy” among “The Best Songs of 2020.”
Speaking of “Backyard Boy,” it inspired over 3 million TikTok videos and fueled the trailer for Amazon’s The Map of Tiny Perfect Things. Along the way, she collaborated with the likes of Jeremy Zucker, Role Model, and Clinton Kane and earned the support of Olivia Rodrigo, Tai Verdes, Lexi Jayde, and 347aidan.
In 2021, Claire presented an unfiltered perspective on being a teen through her sophomore EP introduced by the lead single “Frankenstein.” In 2022, she followed that up with her pop punkified anthem “i’m too pretty for this.” Inciting widespread critical applause, HYPBAE christened it “your new villain era anthem” and went on to hail it as “a relatable bop that literally everyone in a toxic relationship needs to hear.”
