Grimes – Art Angels


Grimes is a Canadian musician, singer, record producer and visual artist. Her music incorporates elements of varied styles and genres including dream pop, R&B, electronic music, and hip hop. Born and raised in Vancouver, she began releasing music independently in the late 2000s, releasing two albums before signing with 4AD. Grimes’ music has been described as synth-pop and art pop. Her work has been likened to various artists, including Björk, Julianna Barwick, Siouxsie Sioux, and Enya. She was described by Tastemakers Magazine as an “alien love-child of Aphex Twin and ABBA”, while the Guardian summarised her musical style: “By sounding a little like everything you’ve ever heard, the whole sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard.” Art Angels is her fourth studio album, released on November 2015. More accessible than her previous albums while retaining her experimental influences, the album features guest appearances by Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes and American singer Janelle Monáe. The album was released to widespread critical acclaim and was ranked by several publications as one of the best albums of 2015.
