New Grimes album ‘Visions’ out now + music video and tour dates

| On 12, Mar 2012

Grimes’ new record Visions is officially released today in the UK, having debuted in the Billboard Top 100 on its release in the US three weeks ago.

The work of Claire Boucher, Grimes is a project that has gained notoriety since its inception back in early-2010. Moving to Montreal from Vancouver in 2006, she developed Grimes among the city?s burgeoning DIY scene; a scene where both punk ethos and pop music collide. Visions is her fourth release in less than two years and countless shows have been performed in this time, both helping to build much intrigue as to what’s next.

With her creative bent being both musical and visual, she draws on the arts of 2D, performance, dance, video and sound, weaving them all together to strong rhythmic effect, incorporating influences as wide as Enya, TLC and Aphex Twin, whilst drawing from genres like New Jack Swing, IDM, New Age, K-pop, Industrial and glitch. The result is a record that is both otherworldly and futuristic.

Grimes also graces the cover of the latest issue of Dazed and Confused Magazine. Shot by Hedi Slimane, the issue streets on March 15th. If you head to Dazed Digital now, you can get a sneak preview and also hear the new album streaming in full HERE
