Grimes cannot read music and has no experience with theory or notation. However, she releases unique, melancholic, catchy weird pop melodies that are strangely addictive.
But don’t let her music background fool you…
Her 12″ Split with d’Eon entitled Darkbloom is out tomorrow, the Halfaxa LP is out now on Arbutus Records and a Sophomore LP is TBA. Grimes has also received rave reviews from BBC Music, Montreal Mirror, among other noted critics. Not to mention in May she begins a US tour with Lykke Li and released music video for “Vanessa”.
