The experimental and daring musician Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes, has released her fourth album, Visions, on 4AD. It follows up her previous endeavors of lo-fi pop and R&B in the past two years. Visions has early tracks that are rich with enhanced, snappy, and well thought-out beats for tracks such as “Genesis”; the song holds a hypnotic intro to keep it on constant repeat for many. However, Visions has the ability to fall into a deeper and darker path for tracks down the line. The album is laced with gorgeously layered and thick vocals, giving it an epic edge that nonetheless stands on a different platform as a psychedelic dance album.
Listen to this: on your way to a sweet electronic show.
