Artist of the Week: Grimes

The eclectic Canadian artist, Grimes is this week highlight on Musikki. She mixes so many music styles that makes it almost impossible to categorize her music. With influences that range from Nine Inch Nails to Dandi Wind, she describes her music style as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) Music due to its frequent and dramatic shifts. In 2012, she released her third album “Visions” through 4AD and Arbutus, which features the single “Genesis”.
