Alewife by Clairo MP3 Info
On “Alewife,” Clairo expresses her gratitude to her friend Alexa, who helped stop her from ending her life when she was in the eighth grade. Intially dubbed, “Eighth Grade,” the song is named after a train station in Massachusetts, near the town where Clairo spent most of her childhood. Clairo gracefully recalls details from the sad event in an emotional yet mild-mannered fashion over an ethereal track. The track is based around an acoustic guitar, featuring glimmering piano, reverent drums, and dampened overdriven bass. Originally, Clairo opted for an electric guitar in “Alewife”, but was asked to re-record the parts by co-producer Rostam. In October 2019, a podcast episode with Clairo and Rostam was posted by Song Exploder, in which the duo talked about the production of the track, from its beginning in Truth Studios, LA to the final product. Alexa also appears in the episode, briefly touching on her reaction to hearing “Alewife.” Download Clairo - Alewife MP3 song file at 320kbps audio quality.
