Grimes for President of the Universe

I was first introduced to the Canadian artist Grimes in London whilst listening to BBC 6 Music last year. The song was ‘Oblivion‘ and as soon as the sound hit my ear drums it was love, then I watched the accompanying video on YouTube and it developed into true love.

Grimes is weird, she is different and to be truly different in a mine field of artists who are desperate to stand out by wearing quirky costumes etc, she somehow manages to do it so naturally. This is most likely due to fact she comes across a tad bit mental. Just read her Wikipedia to get the gist.

I  downloaded her third album ‘Visions’ recently and have been listening to little else since. My favourite songs from Visions would have to be ‘Circumambient’ and ‘Skin’ (video below) but the whole album is amazing from start to finish.

Ryan Gosling and Grimes are officially my two favourite Canadians.
