New music releases have been coming out left and right - and now we can add Grimes to that list as well! Last night on BBC Radio 1, she debuted her new single “GO (feat. Blood Diamonds)”.
Though she stays in her electronic wheelhouse, “GO” greatly departs from the magical sprite-meets-Windows ’98 sound we’ve come to love (and expect) from her. Instead, her new single is very trap-house, complete with a drop and no more "light as air" vocals. Read More

Former BUST cover-woman Grimes is a bit like a shooting star: she rarely comes out of hiding, but when she does it's seriously magical. Was that analogy too corny? Oh well! You know it's true!
Though she's busy recording her fourth album, the follow-up to the already cult-status-certified Visions, she took a break to chat with Teen Vogue for their upcoming December/January issue. The accompanying photoshoot embodies the 11 years Claire Boucher (her "real" alias) spent studying ballet. Read More

Musician and BUST favorite Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) has announced the launch of her new jewelry line collabo with sculptor and jeweler Morgan Black. The rings are feminine to the max, and we mean that very seriously–they're sculpted in the form of (you guessed it), a vajayjay.
She released photos of her “pussy rings” on her tumblr yesterday, and appears to have worn one for her appearance on British TV show Later…with Jools Holland. Read More

The music that Grimes' Claire Boucher makes is not the kind you would associate with, say, a motorbike competition or a football game. The indie-pop-electronic artist layers her high-pitched, ethereal voice over airy, '80s-inspired synth beats to evoke something dreamlike, dancey, and not completely of this world. But sports arenas (very much rooted in this world) are where she and director Emily Kai Bock filmed the video for the song "Oblivion," off Grimes' third album, Visions. Read More

Montreal's Claire Boucher (aka Grimes) seemed a bit shy on stage in front of a sold out crowd at NYC's Bowery Ballroom recently. She confessed that she hadn’t played a show in a while and was forgetting songs. Well, I didn’t notice. Here’s what I did notice: Grimes’ songs are basically the perfect soundtrack for a f*ed up Grimm Brothers Fairytale. It’s that tense "Hansel & Gretel lost in the woods after being coaxed to the candy house" kind of
creepy. In other words, goth/industrial synth-pop that’s eerie and drugged-up dreamy. Read More
