Visions arises as Grimes’ fourth release in less than two years. Incorporating influences as wide as Enya, TLC and Aphex Twin, drawing from genres like New Jack Swing, IDM, New Age, K-pop, industrial and glitch - this approach has marked Grimes as a curator of culture, allowing the project to remain flexible and evolving.
Despite an upbeat demeanor, an urgency permeates the album. Calling between our history and the future, it uses the pleasure of minimal rhythms and dance to entice. Yet beyond its rich, software-sculpted cohesiveness and vocal energy, runs a very real and odd world.
