If you aren’t already listening to Grimes, then it’s time to catch up. The 23-year-old Montreal based musician, aka Claire Boucher, blurs the lines between singer and producer by making and recording her own records. Delivering influences from lullabies to Nicki Minaj through her lisping four octave range voice, Grimes whispers of vulnerability but is powerfully mesmerising.

Totally committed to the creative process, for her fourth record offering, Visions, Boucher blacked out the windows and merged night with day for three weeks. Oblivion, featuring a compulsively watchable video by Emily Kai Bock, is a floor-filling pop song with shadowy undertones. We love her strong brows and free-spirit style. Look out for Grimes in Twin’s new issue next month.
