Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, is going to release her third solo album called Visions in January. Arriving via Arbutus Records, Visions mirrors a more expansive, poppy palette of influences than the Canadian’s previous albums on Lo Recordings and Hippos In Tanks. You can download the track ‘Oblivion’ below – literally the best thing you are going to hear today. A spectral melody meet “LaLaLas”, broken synths and expansive production for a nirvana of introspective wallowing. Makes us feel like teenagers. Again.
