Grimes are getting lots of love from the Gorilla vs Bear blog, which is the indie rock equivalent of getting a golden ticket in your candy bar. The latest band to bestowed with the blessings from the Lonestar State is the Montreal based group Grimes, who create really pretty, lush, melodic pop. The song “Devon” show the angelic vocals and simple but textured backing music that create the chilly beauty of the track. I’m not sure if Grimes will take off like other bands who have previously been hoisted on this pedestal (like Cults), but I could see it happening. Watch a short documentary about the group below and grab a free album from the group HERE from the Arbutus record label website.
