Montreal’s strange and melodically hypnotizing songstress, Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes, has announced a US tour with Lykke Li, set to kick off May 15 in Washington D.C..

You can check out Grimes and all her gender-bending goodness in the video for “Vanessa”, which exhibits the young Canadian chirping out her magical, almost haunting vocals to an eerie compilation of dancing women in bizarre make-up. The track is off of the split EP, DarkBloom, which she recorded in collaboration with fellow Canadian d’Eon.

Both DarkBloom, which is now being released on 12-inch vinyl, and her debut album, Halfaxa, are available through Arbutus Records.
