22-year-old Claud Mintz was once part of the duo Toast, until a 2019 solo release, “Wish You Were Gay,” brought the bedroom-pop singer to the attention of Phoebe Bridgers. Signed to her label, the February release Super Monster, packed with tales of alienation and navel-gazing, has caught fire with Claud’s fanbase. Claud stopped by our tent backstage at the 2021 ACL Music Festival to perform a stripped down version “Soft Spot” for our cameras.
