Weekend video 2


Just right for a spaced-out Sunday morning... The Guardian was once again my source.

"There was sort of a moment of realisation," says 23-year-old Claire Boucher. "One day, I was listening to music and it suddenly made sense to me how it was constructed." That was just three years ago. Ever since a friend showed Boucher how the music software GarageBand worked, she's been recording and performing under the alias Grimes, compulsively making the kind of music that compels you to dance.

"It's kind of like I'm Phil Spector and I'm forcing a young girl to make pop music and perform exhaustively," she says cheerily. "Except, instead of it being someone else, that girl is also me."
