Grimes deliver an ethereal sensory experience. More than a band, they conceptualize their art beyond music and into performance, dance, video and 2D art. Lead singer Claire Boucher has an arresting voice that’s paired with daydream-like melodies. Listening to Grimes may make you feel like you’re floating away on a cloud – in other words light, tranquil, carefree.
The busy duo is readying for the release of their EP Visions (their fourth in two years) out January 31st. I suggest familiarizing yourself with some of their older material, if you haven’t already. As Claire sings on “Avi” from Geidi Crimes (2010), “I will take your breathe away,” and she’s right about that.
Listen to “Genesis” from their upcoming EP Visions.
