The NME recently described Grimes as the number 1 Most Exciting Band To Watch In 2012. While, to be honest, the NME stopped being relevant in about 2001, for once have got something spot on.

Claire Boucher, the creative force behind Grimes, developed the project after moving to Montreal in 2006 and the result is representative of the burgeoning DIY scene where both punk ethos and pop music collide. Oblivion is taken from Visions, which will be Grimes’ fourth release in less than two years.
