After generating over half-a-billion streams and earning herself top slots off multiple year-end lists in 2020, breakout artist Claire Rosinkranz is back with new, catchy tune “Frankenstein” and it’s poised to hook you in just like her beloved “Backyard Boy.” This song repurposes The Cardigans’ classic hit “Lovefool,” but provides her own spin by incorporating new pop influences and spotlights a sporty cowbell.
Bright and quirky, “Frankenstein” highlights Rosinkranz’s unique writing style and her bubbly indie pop sound. The lyrics describe the young artist’s ideal boy, with characteristics seemingly unattainable to be found in one person naturally, hence she’s “gotta build [her] Frankenstein.” She goes into great detail, noting the “dirty converse, six-two, and brown hair” while also “never on [her] nerves and gets along with [her] dad.” A boy who’s drama free and spoils you beyond belief? Guess we have to put our own order in for one of Rosinkranz’s Frankenstein boys. In regards to the tune’s conception, Rosinkranz shares:
“I imagine somebody who’s been in a bunch of past relationships, and they haven’t worked out for whatever reason. The guy is just too egotistical. So, you’re fed up and actually try to Frankenstein your perfect boy together. It’s honestly innocent, carefree, and cute.”
Riding off the success of her 2020 hit “Backyard Boy,” which inspired over 3 million videos on TikTok, a placement in Amazon’s The Map of Tiny Perfect Things trailer, and dubbed by New York Times and Billboard among “The Best Songs of 2020,” this new single poises itself as a perfect reintroduction to the young artist and her sophomore EP slated for release this summer 2021.
Southern-California singer, songwriter, ballerina, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Rosinkranz grafts the Gen-Z coming-of-age experience onto quirky D.I.Y. soundscapes often cooked up by her dad in the garage. Within a year, the 17-year-old phenomenon has eclipsed over half-a-billion total streams and received widespread acclaim courtesy of Rolling Stone, Variety, Coup de Main, Buzzfeed, Genius, and more. She’s 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.
