Grimes – Phalanx MP3 download
Grimes is the pseudonym of Claire Elise Boucher, a singer-songwriter and experimental electro pop producer. Her music is characterized by 80s-influenced synths, pop sensibility, and high-pitched, ethereal vocals that sit in the background.
Upon releasing her first two albums, Geidi Primes and Halfaxa, in 2010 (Arbutus Records), and a split record with d’Eon called Darkbloom in 2011, she increased her fanbase and captured the attention of many.
The attention led to a record deal with label 4AD and her third album, Visions, released in 2012, which she produced entirely on Garageband. The album received mass critical acclaim and pushed Grimes closer to the spotlight.
At the end of 2013, she signed to be managed by Roc Nation, and following some sparse releases, released Art Angels in 2015. This album once again showed Boucher’s skilled craft, but with catchy choruses that she’d bend and twist to expand the possibilities of music.
Armed with passion, eclecticism, and a distinct sense of confidence, Grimes’ music excites and enthralls her listeners, challenging them emotionally and psychologically. Grimes’ discography reflects her obvious versatility—feminist club bangers, “escaping into art”, politically-coded tracks regarding sexual assault, and lyrics surrounding numb artistry.
Her inability to read music doesn’t affect her quality whatsoever; she produces and engineers all her tracks herself.
