The above video shows live performance of Canadian artist Grimes ( Claire Boucher ) on Kexp.
It is fascinating to see her live at work, directing her electronic tools and adding just another live voice layer to the music while she sits on the floor.
Grimes turns the Kexp studio into a kind of “teenage room” with a homely atmosphere and isn’t afraid to show vulnerability or make mistakes.
Her music does remind us of the “ethereal” dream pop genre but goes beyond that. Grimes uses an eclectic mix of styles and experiments with elements such as loops and layering techniques in an industrial way. The result is a unique musical statement.
