Recently, electronic musician Grimes (otherwise known as Claire Boucher) released a surprise single—her first non-feature since 2015’s Art Angels. In “We Appreciate Power,” Grimes diverges from the lively sounds of Art Angels, but remains distinctively idiosyncratic, nevertheless.
The darkwave/synth-punk scene keeps on emerging and the Icelandic three-piece Kælan Mikla are one of the remarkable acts that keep the scene going. Back on November 9th, the band released their third studio album “Nótt eftir nótt” under the Toronto-based label Artoffact Records. Earlier this year they have gone through a stellar journey by performing at high-profile stages such as Roadburn and The Cure’s 40th Anniversary, and now they’re striving for something even higher through this new release.
