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. On her 4AD debut Visions — which came out March 12th 2012 and was proudly distributed in New Zealand by Rhythmethod — 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 eff ect, incorporating infl uences 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.
