Clairo (Claire Cottrill) considers Diary.001, (from 2018) to be “a good representation of the last three or four years of me making music and kind of being confused about where I want to land.” Following the breakout success of “Pretty Girl,” Cottrill felt the need to prove herself in the realm of music: I really didn’t want “Pretty Girl” to be the last thing anyone heard from me. I knew that I could do more. The songs, though different, represent distinct times in her life as if written in a diary. The EP was written and produced during Cottrill’s freshman year at Syracuse University.
