The One Electronic

I’ve been following Grimes on and off for years now.

On first hearing her songs I thought they were just like all the other tweepop songs out there; cute but of little value

On subsequent listenings however I realised that there is a lot of musical craftmanship involved; they are some of the most intricate electronic pieces of work out there. And on some songs the lyrics refer to subjects that are anything but cute.

Overall, I find Grimes to be much more than meets the ear. There is something in her music that feels like echoes from a distant future and echoes from the future is what I live for
