Claire Boucher is Grimes from Montreal, Canada. Her melody makers and textures are acousticy at times, with slightly danceable electronic pulsations atop. Some grooves feel distant and drenched in reverb, maybe somewhat resembling 80s pop feels. Her vocals feel small and hushed ranging in style over her dark and lighter moods.

Grimes is currently on a U.S. tour with Doldrums and will be in Gainesville on Thursday, March 10th at the Laboratory.

The above tracks are from 2010's Geidi Primes out on Arbutus.
