A prolific force, Visions will be Grimes' fourth release in less than two years and she has also performed countless shows in this time. With each album tackling a different set of influences and styles, her latest set incorporates influences as wide as Enya, TLC and Aphex Twin, whilst also drawing from genres like New Jack Swing, IDM, New Age, K-pop, Industrial and glitch. This approach has marked out Grimes as a curator of culture, and allowed the project to remain flexible and to evolve.
Claire describes her work as, “the only means through which I can be fully expressive. It is both an ethereal escape from, and a violent embrace of, my experience. The creative process is a quest for the ultimate sensual, mystical and cathartic experience and the vehicle for my psychic purging. Visions was conceived in a period of self-imposed cloistering during which time I did not see daylight.”
