Grimes Premieres Video For "Oblivion" On VEVO || Announces SXSW + Pitchfork Music Festival Performances


Co-Directed by Grimes and Emily Kai Bock  Cinematography by Evan Prosofsky
"One of the most exciting solo acts working today." Billboard
"One of the most impressive albums of the year so far." NY Times 
"Boucher offers surprises on almost every track of her third album. She never settles for the easy way out, taking her most straightforward pop songs for disorienting detours and sneaking sweet sounds into every heavily textured soundscape." Washington Post 
"Assortment of vocal loops, dark beats and twisted effects sound as if they're meant to be enjoyed predominantly at night — or maybe under a single shaft of sunlight that breaks through to the dark corners of a dance floor." NPR
"A Princess Peach voice over synthy, laptop-crafted melodies. The effect is magical and almost biorhythmic; it sounds like something from a utopian future.” W Magazine
"When listening to the bouyant hooks from "Oblivion" and the oddly serene beats on "Genesis", some of Grimes' current influences are a bit obvious right off the bat; the haunting falsetto of Cocteau Twins' Elizabeth Fraser and contemporary Asian pop music's aberrant giddiness immediately come to mind.” XLR8R
"Claire Boucher churns up wafts of magic potion for the ears. Her undulations seem vocally improvisational yet instrumentally calculated, her melodies dark yet liberating, meditative but danceable.” The Creator’s Project
"Early frontrunner for album of the year” Gorilla vs Bear
“Other-worldly voice, dubstep-inflected beats, and twisted melodies" NYLON
“What happens when you merge the soundtracks of Twin Peaks and Tron” BUST
