Grimes – Vanessa



The breathy and soft vocals over simple lo fi synths on Grimes track “Vanessa” are just stunning and reminiscent of early Lykke Li demos. I’m in love.

Grimes is the alias of Claire Boucher, a Montreal-based artist.  According to her bio Grimes “fuses contemporary instrumentation with classical vocal practices from around the world.” The track below will appear on an upcoming split with d’Eon called the “Darkbloom” EP. It’s out April 19th via Arbutus Records/Hippos in Tanks in digital and vinyl 12-inch formats.
