I’ve been a fan of Grimes ever since I heard her song”Swan Song” mixing her odd vocal chants with chill and dance music. Grimes is the project of Vancouver-born and raised singer/songwriter/producer/visual artist Claire Boucher. She began making music while studying neuroscience at McGill University in Montreal. She calls her music either “aggressively angry or aggressively stoked”
As she declares in “Flesh Before Blood” “If you don’t need me, just let me go”. It’s not your typical dance lyric
Her fourth album and first in three years “Art Angels”comes out today and be thankful you have another week to discover new music and put off streaming only Christmas music. This album is one of the reasons I have put off my top 10 list. This might be a late entry onto the list!
