In a world craving something refreshingly unconventional, Caroline & Claude have emerged as a force to be reckoned with. 

The Sydney brother-sister duo ignites the music scene with a potent blend of acerbic Gen Z wit, timeless pop hooks, and unapologetic chaos. Breaking the mold of traditional pop, they deliver a sound that is both classic and iconoclastic, their songwriting unabashedly strange yet irresistibly catchy.

First bursting onto the scene in mid-2021 with their debut single, Stir The PotCaroline & Claude captured the attention of discerning fans and tastemakers not only in their native Australia but also across the pond in the US and UK. 

Now, after much anticipation, Caroline & Claude are ready to shake things up after dropping their highly anticipated Slap from their latest EP.

According to the pair, Slap is a song about hard-hitting truths, they distil pure energy, witty chaos and introspection for an irreplicable dreamy combination that continues to reinvigorate the pop landscape of Australia.

Slap is about hard-hitting truths," the duo share, adding, "You need to hear them, but boy does it hurt. Slap explores the idea that everything in your life is going downhill, and it's just one slap after the other... and the words people say to you, whether it’s true or not, HURT!! I guess Miss Lizzo wasn't lying when she sang 'truth hurts'..." 

Speaking of the creative process behind Slap, the duo shares, "From the beginning, Slap was one of those songs where whilst writing it we got giddy and couldn’t contain the pure energy in the room." 

"Writing the track in Auckland with Josh Fountain set the tone of the song to already be a #BANGER. There was pure inspiration and a pre-existing excitement in the room... We all were feeling this song hard in the studio.”

To celebrate the release of their latest track Slap from their EP Nan's USB, the talented Sydney siblings shared some of their favourite snaps and memories from the making of their latest track.

Plant Cafe

"This is a photo of the cafe that was close to the studio!! it was SOOO YUM and we ate there almost every day!! maybe it’s the reason we wrote a banger??"
