This girl—Claire Boucher—was amazing. Amazingly weird. Reminiscent of a really good desert party. Cosmic pop, dark and angelic at the same time with a voice that is not from this world. She calls herself Grimes, opened for Lykke Li and totally transported the crowd to the right place. Deep basslines. Crazy high and childlike sounding vocals. Right with her first song. RAD. End your Memorial Day with something memorable.
Get Dark Bloom, Boucher’s forthcoming split 12″ EP (with her Montreal bud d’Eon).
Happy shorter workweek, friends
