Holly Clausius Releases Her New Ballad “Clementine”
Holly Clausius Delivers “Clementine”– A Gorgeous Ballad About Young Queer Love Ahead Of Her Debut LP “Rose Garden”
Ahead of her upcoming album “Rose Garden”, singer-songwriter Holly Clausius released “Clementine”, a whimsical indie-folk ballad. Clementine is a playful folk-pop number about a queer elementary school infatuation and asking a girl to dance. With smooth, buttery vocals and a sound mixing old-school Taylor Swift with Brandi Carlile, “Clementine” is the perfect slow-dance song for a new generation. When asked about the song, Holly says, “this Fearless-era inspired track makes you feel like you’re 12 years old again, watching seasons change as this character describes her first crush and the nerves that surround that.”
Holly Clausius is a queer artist blazing a trail of her own. Currently based in Toronto, Holly Clausius is a full-time musician mixing the genres of folk, pop, and rock.
