When speaking with MTV Hive, musical mixed bag Claire Boucher, more commonly known to the music community as Grimes, has opened up about her desire to fuse together the genres of reggaeton and industrial in a non-Grimes side project.
When asked if she had began work on a follow-up to her popular third LP Visions, which came towards the beginning of 2012, Boucher said that the new material she has been working on is somewhat of a departure from the sounds of Grimes.
“I’m thinking about making one that is a bit more experimental that I don’t put out as Grimes, because I want to stick with this pop aesthetic as Grimes. I’ve been working on more percussive noise music and also a lot of straight vocal music. I want to make [both] dark percussive shit and vocal ranging and release an album that’s halfway between ethereal reggaeton and industrial dance music but is still very pop in its song [structures],” Boucher told MTV Hives.
It’s been an exciting year for Boucher, who so far in 2012 has curated her own art show built around her drawings that adorn the cover of Visions, released a line of vagina shaped rings, has plans to make her own brand of chainmail and has said she will tour Australia some time in November/December.
