Coco & Clair Clair Eat Glizzies on Tour in NYC

Saying "Coco & Clair Clair" aloud solidifies the feeling that you must have known them forever: they're your childhood best friends and this is their silly, goofy nickname. The pair are calculated in their creative choices to make in-group lingo accessible to the outside as if everyone is in on the joke. Welcome to the world of cool girls Coco & Clair Clair.

After a meet-cute on Twitter in 2013, now-BFFLs Claire Toothill and Taylor Nave have become the internet's favorite girl clique, producing ironic-or-not closet-recorded tracks that straddle the boundaries of SoundCloud rap and bedroom pop.

In 2017, the duo released their DIY debut project, Posh, an EP that found the sweet intersection of Claire Toothill’s airy vocals and Taylor Nave’s biting raps. Now, five years later, their sound, while still cheeky and untamed, has matured in their overt confidence to explore new sounds and concepts. SEXY, their debut album, is chaotic, self-assured and very funny, featuring buzzy names like Lagos-based rapper Deto Black and NYC indie band Porches.

PAPER got a behind-the-scenes look at Coco & Clair Clair's iconic fashion, friends and fans. Check out the tour diary and full list of winter tour dates below.

Coco’s outfit for our Los Angeles show. A pair of sunglasses that Clair Clair got her in Newcastle, a thrifted turtleneck, thrifted dress shorts from the men’s section, a corset and a pair of Donald J. Pliner boots. Clair Clair wears a thrifted blue dress that she chopped short, a vintage leather bomber and a pair of over-the-knee Prada boots.

All ready for showtime at The Echo! We loved this gorgeous greenroom. Our pre-show snacks included Doritos and vodka sodas.

Our friend Jake wearing our new merch at Monkey Bar in New York. It's been closed for a few years and just recently opened back up, we went because Gwenyth Paltrow had been the night before and we saw her post about it on Instagram. Absolutely delicious, j'adore!
