Canadian artiste Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes, is a musician and music video director who is famous for her dabbling in experimental music. While she was attending McGill University in Montréal, she became involved with the underground electronic and industrial music scene. In 2010, she released her debut album, “Geidi Primes”. Two years later, “Visions” was released and was immediately hailed by The New York Times as “one of the most impressive albums of the year so far”.
According to Grimes, she would spend weeks barricaded inside a room without food, sleep, or company while working on her music. Sure, it sounds like a rehabilitation of some sort – almost cruel. But for her, it’s all part of the essential process of creating hypnotic weirdo pop.
