Having stormed into the international music scene in 2010, Aussie fans of electronic visionary Grimes can finally rejoice. Not only will she be making her Australian debut for Meredith Music Festival, the Canadian songstress has also announced a series of headlining sideshows.
Coming down in support of her latest album Visions, Grimes will be playing some very intimate performances throughout the East Coast, hitting Brissy, Sydney and Melbourne. We have all heard about how jaw dropping her live performances are, what with all the sold-out American and European tours, but we can now witness the audio/visual journey first hand.
Out of her four releases, Visions has by far kicked up the biggest wave of support for the young musician. This is ironic seeing that, unlike the three previous albums Geidi, Primes and Halfaxa, Visions was recorded during a 9-day binge in Grimes’ Montreal bedroom. Going by the much more human name of Claire Boucher, Grimes commented that the project was “conceived in a period of self-imposed cloistering during which time I did not see daylight”.
Grimes is known for growing and developing her style, concepts and performances, so if anything, the wait has been in our favour as the Grimes we will see throughout December will be the best version of Grimes yet.
