Hotly-tipped Canadian musician and visual artist Grimes returns to Glasgow on Wednesday 29th August.

Despite properly exploding in the media some time around February with her latest album Visions, Grimes has been setting the blogosphere alight with her lush, layered electronic pop for some time now. Her first full-length studio release on indie/shoegaze label 4AD, over 13 tracks the visual artist and musician somehow combines the soft electronic sweetness of Glass Candy and Nite Jewel with the ethereal charm of Kate Bush, Tori Amos or Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser to create something startlingly unique and excitingly promising – at once unsettling, ghostly and lingering, whilst never losing sight of a purely pop love of melody.

Currently hounded for interviews and soundbites on http://www.thearches.co.uk/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=eventsmusic, art and more from every music journalist worth their salt, her full show at the Arches this August follows her sell-out Glasgow debut solo show at the Berkeley Suite in May. Support comes from post-dubstep/future-techno producer Becoming Real and Majical Cloudz (who appear on her track Nightmusic).
