about

Lydmor sets fire to the dance floor with her new single. On ' 四
Claudia' the electronic musician and songwriter opens the door into an edgy universe, where something dark and wrong lurks in the shadows of bodies and hotel rooms that suddenly transform into Parisian luxury suites with panthers wearing diamond leaches.
Musically and lyrically you can submerge yourself in the many layers of the song.

'四 Claudia' is a tour-de-force in dynamics and efficient build-up.
From soothing electronic details the drama soars towards thundering cascades of synths in the techno-infused climax.
As the musical drama intensifies, the lyrics grow into a reciting poem, rich with metaphors, with Lydmor both describing the situation and at the same time tears the patriarchal ideal to shreds.

She explains: »The song is a female declaration of power against the patriarchate, symbolized in the line: ”Behold, Money, I am woman!” Meaning: ”I observe you and I don't want you, because I'm stronger than you”. The lyrics are based on a poem detailing how a rich man manipulates a woman's life, but in the end she emerges victorious and on top. A feminist manifest for sure and a song about the horrible power tools grounded in sexuality, money, politics and submission. Based on personal experiences and presented as disguised art. If I revealed who Claudia truly really is, it would ruin the lives of certain people.«

Track Name: 四 Claudia
Sweet baby many names
Take the kitty in your hand honey
Sweet lady many games
Spend a little of the band money
On Claudia
On Claudia

Same street a different night
In the middle of the beast belly
Suit glasses and a tie
Type of money that can get any
With your whispering hands
And your futile commands
Your in search for new plans
I hope you find it all
All your looking for
But sweet baby many names
Take the kitty in your hand honey
Sweet lady many games
Spend a little of the band money
On Claudia

With me is Money

Tinkle tinkle on the stairs
Bodes extravagant intro

A single gold coin falls through
the keyhole
Then

Bang! He jumps in
With 40ties swing music

Winks to me under his
Sharply trimmed brows
And turns my ceiling lamp
into a chandelier

He kisses my cat fondly
into a panther with a diamond leash

Dances around
pointing this way and that

Until my room resembles a
Parisian luxury suite
My breasts
are 3 sizes bigger
And my cereal has turned into
Cocaine

Finally he stands with wild
ecstatic eyes
In the center of his creation

‘Behold Woman, I am Money!’

Loud and slow
Like citing some ancient ritual
I let fall the last piece of underwear
And bow my head

‘Behold Money, I am Woman.’

You want Claudia
I’m not Claudia

Take that poor little kittie in your hand honey
So spend a little of that hard earned band Money
