"Born and raised in upstate New York, Clare Hubbard has been striving to recreate the stark and ghostly sounds of her birthplace through lo-fi multi-instrument experimentation and by creating a variety of 'identities' within her music. Her project Caethua serves as her primary musical identity, focusing on the darkness of nature and her melancholy recollections of the past. Composed, recorded and produced independently, her music is clearly influenced by early psych-folk composers, combining stark imagery with slow drones, haunting melodies, and scratchy field recordings. In her own words, her work sounds like '...cold marriages of growing up in the snow-covered cornfields of upstate New York, moldy nylon string guitars, a hissing blend of flea market half-working electronics, rusted pots and pans, field recordings of a doomed boat trip down the St. Lawrence River, birds in the ice-covered trees, the groan of an overheating diesel engine, shortwave radio in the middle of nowhere, busted cars sliding in the sleet of Indiana, the soft hum of an old living room, hissing from Florida swamps and a sorrowful voice leading us into the frozen ground.'"
