Grimes is the stagename of one Claire Boucher. Another Canadian – is it me or am I collecting a few Canadians? Anyhow, Darkbloom was a collaborative studio album with her compatriot d’Eon. However ‘Vanessa’ is very much from Grimes’s side of that album. Undoubtedly influenced by dance, this style of quirky female indie accompanied with mysterious electronica (think The Knife, The XX) is going strong. I think I should be thanking Soundcloud.
