If you’ve seen Grimes live recently, you know about the Canadian sci-fi pop star’s tendency to reinvent her songs in a live setting. When we’ve caught Claire Boucher live, we’ve been super impressed by how she’s performing deep cut “Vanessa,” from her 2011 split record with D’Eon, Darkbloom. When Boucher visited BBC Radio 1 recently, she recorded a new version of “Vanessa” that’s closer to how she’s been performing it live –– in short, she kind of remixed herself? As much as we liked the original, we’re digging how Claire amped up the track’s complexity with a bevy of layers and effects without losing any of its confessional quality. Check it below:
