With a swooping, baby-voiced singing style, Grimes (the alias of Vancouver native Claire Boucher) crafts a haunting brand of lo.
fi dance music that combines the dark, dreamy music of Cocteau Twins with the 80s synth obsession of Madonna. In 2010 she
put out two cassettes, Geidi Primes and Halfaxa, which were both made available as free downloads. Darkbloom, a split EP with
D'Eon, was released on Arbutus/Hippos in Tanks in 2011. Soon after, Grimes signed to the legendary U.K. label 4AD for the
release of 2012's Visions.
