Music Review: Grimes

Grimes Visions

February 21 2012

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.
