Grimes – Skin

February 3, 2012

Claire Boucher’s vocals are chameleonic, constantly bending in ways that compliment the mix and make her voice feel like something that was born out of the track itself. While in the past, Grimes compositions are often characterized by an unpredictable and manic energy, Boucher’s upcoming release on 4AD, Visions, looks to be more composed and focused. Tracks like “Skin” are shining examples of something this blog has been hinting at for months now–Grimes is up to something special.
