So, if you haven’t heard Grimes before and are listening to this, keep in mind that her previously released music is NOTHING like this. That being said, THIS IS GOLD! Grimes (née Claire Elise Boucher) is a Canadian indie artist who actually has no formal music training. She started with the kit and taught herself how to loop and create different sounds and there is something admirable to that. I have to be honest, her music isn’t my favorite but she puts on a pretty good live show. Okay, about the song! She’s definitely taking advantage of the mainstream popularity of Trap music, and there is nothing wrong with that when the product is this fun and infectious. Her vox are actually perfect for EDM which may the way she is heading with her new album (apparently not due out until NEXT YEAR). Anyway, at least we got a good track to get some mileage out in the meantime. Enjoy.
