Claire Boucher (né en Mars 17, 1988), mieux connu sous son nom de scène Grimes, est une artiste canadienne, musicienne, et réalisatrice de clip vidéo. Originaire de Vancouver, Grimes a commencé à enregistrer de la musique expérimentale à l'Université McGill à Montréal, où elle a participé à la scène de musique électronique et industrielle.

En 2010, elle sort son premier album, Primes Geidi avec le single Arbutus, suivie par Halfaxa (2010). À la fin de 2011, elle a annoncé qu'elle avait signé avec le label 4AD, qui est en partenariat avec Arbutus et sort son troisième album, Visions (2012). Visions rencontré un succès critique et a été saluée par les New York Times comme «l'un des albums les plus impressionnants de l'année à ce jour».

Grimes a été noté par les critiques et les journalistes pour sa combinaison atypique d'éléments vocaux, ainsi que d'un large éventail d'influences, allant de l'industrie et électronique à la pop, hip-hop, R & B, rock noise et même la musique médiévale.


Early life

Boucher was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia.[5][6] She is of Québécois descent.[7] She graduated from Lord Byng Secondary School[8] and did ballet for 11 years.[9] At age 18, she moved to Montreal, Quebec to attend Montreal's McGill University, studying Russian literature and later, neuroscience.[6][10] It was during her studies that she began to record and perform under the name Grimes.[5] However, as Grimes became a more serious endeavor for her, she began to miss a large number of classes, and began only attending to take exams, resulting in the university taking punitive actions against her and she was expelled.[11] While in Montreal, she began attending concerts put on by local experimental musicians at Lab Synthèse, a performance space located in an abandoned textile factory.[12]. She has also has a step-brother who raps under the name Jay Worthy,[13] they collaborated on her album Visions on The Christmas Song.
In 2009, Boucher and her then-boyfriend from Tennessee constructed a 20-foot houseboat, named the "Velvet Glove Cast in Iron," with the intention to sail it down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans. The cargo included chickens, a typewriter, 20 pounds of potatoes and a gifted copy of Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Unfortunately for Grimes and her companion, the chickens caught eastern equine encephalitis virus and perished soon into the trip. Boucher and her companion adopted the names "Varuschka" and "Zelda Xox" for the trip.[14] Due to engine trouble and subsequent harassment from the Minnesota police, the journey was cut short and the houseboat and chickens were impounded.[14] Their diet consisted mainly of potatoes.

Career

Grimes performing at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas in March 2012.
Grimes' debut album, Geidi Primes, was released on cassette in 2010 through Arbutus Records. Later in 2010, Grimes released her second album, Halfaxa, also through Arbutus. In 2011, Grimes released a split 12” with D’eon titled Darkbloom. In May 2011 she opened for Lykke Li on her North American Tour[5][6] and the following August, her debut album was re-released through No Pain in Pop Records, in CD and vinyl format for the first time.[16] Also in 2011, she made an appearance on Majical Cloudz's single "Dream World"[17] and collaborated with DJ/producer Blood Diamonds.[18][19]
Grimes announced on her Twitter, in January 2012 that she had signed with record label 4AD. The label released her third full-length LP, Visions, in February 2012 in the United States and March 2012 in other countries with Arbutus releasing in Canada.[20] Pitchfork Media listed Visions in their Best New Music category.[21] Her song "Oblivion" from the album received favorable reviews from noted music critic David Hajdu in The New Republic.[22]
Grimes described writing the new album in a recent interview as being "equally enjoyable and tortuous but I feel like the fact that it was really hard was part of the reason that it was really good, y’know? I definitely look back on that time with fond memories, even though I remember crying and being like “I hate everything!” at the time! (Laughs) But I recorded it in my room in Montreal and it was a really good way to work."[23] According to Grimes, she wrote the album after spending nine days in isolation: "[After nine days] you have no stimulation, so your subconscious starts filling in the blanks", she said. "I started to feel like I was channelling spirits. I was convinced my music was a gift from God. It was like I knew exactly what to do next, as if my songs were already written."[10]
On April 27, 2012 Grimes announced a line of rings inspired by the vulva.[24]



Musical style

Grimes' music is not easily defined. An eclectic mix of styles which she herself describes as "ADD music", it shifts frequently and dramatically – "I go through phases a lot."[25] Her work has been likened to various artists, including Björk[10] and Enya[12] and she was described by Tastemaker Magazine as an "alien love-child of Aphex Twin and ABBA"[26] 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."[27]
According to Grimes, she had a "realization" at age 20 as to how music was created,[27] which enabled her to begin recording and experimenting. "One day, I was listening to music and it suddenly made sense to me how it was constructed", she said.[27] She went on, saying: "I have a nervous tic. When I was a kid, I would constantly be banging on things with my foot. Making music has been a really good mechanism for releasing some kind of percussive issue that I have. It's usually about finding a perfect beat; I play around until I get a tempo I like and then it's just a matter of filling in the blanks."[27]
Her primary instruments are keyboards and synthesizers, sometimes accompanied by drums and occasionally guitar instrumentation. Grimes utilizes looping and layering techniques, particularly with vocals; many of her songs feature layers of over fifty different vocal tracks which create an "ethereal" sound.[12]
Grimes herself cited various musicians as influences, including Skinny Puppy,[28] Nine Inch Nails, Cocteau Twins [5], How to Dress Well, [29] Swans,[10] Dandi Wind, Beyoncé, Mariah Carey [30], Outkast, Dungeon Family, Drake, The Weeknd,[31] as well as medieval music and industrial artists. She also considers Los Angeles stripper/rapper Brooke Candy "a very contemporary muse."

Son nouvelle album devait sortir en septembre... Elle va finalement tout recommencé à zéro.

Chaud quand même, mais content malgré tout ! "Go" été trop éloigné de son univers, la 1er écoute j'ai fais "Euuuuuuuuuuu", après ça s'écoute mais bon des artistes "pop-mainstream" sans univers il y en a assez.

Grimes - Realiti
Realiti aurait bien pu tomber dans l'Oblivion («oubli» en français). En septembre dernier, Grimes confiait au New York Times qu'elle avait entièrement détruit tout ce qui devait être son prochain album afin de tout recommencer. Elle essuyait les reproches d'être devenue «trop commerciale» à la suite de son titre Go (initialement prévu pour Rihanna). Des mauvaises réactions qui avaient blessée et découragée la fée canadienne.
Heureusement, Claire Boucher a rescapé un titre de la benne à ordure. Certes, Realiti est moins rentre-dedans que ce que à quoi Grimes nous avait habitué avec Visions, son dernier album, mais l'essence de la jeune femme âgée de 28 ans reste bel et bien intacte. «Cette chanson n'a jamais été terminée. C'est une démo de The Lost Album, enregistré début 2013», écrit la chanteuse en publiant sur son compte YouTube un clip très esthétique entièrement tourné lors de sa tournée asiatique, qu'elle a elle-même réalisé et monté. Le bonus? Le morceau frôle malgré tout la perfection signée Grimes.
