Grimes audio universe is one where Kate Bush jams with Fleetwood Mac in a flotation tank while the spirit of Arthur Russell hovers overhead. That’s not to suggest that the Grimes sound is all sweetness and light, there’s sometimes a dark undertow reminiscent of Salem. The same darkness that Julie Cruise tapped into so beautifully for Twin Peaks and like fellow warped pop maverick Autre Ne Veut there’s a touch of Prince flirting with the Cocteau Twins. But enough of this talk of other artists, the great thing about Grimes is that despite the influence of myriad styles including R&B, industrial, goth, hip hop and shoegaze, Grimes creates a unique sound world you can lose yourself in for days, weeks… a lifetime.
