Be inspired by Grimes

For me Inspiration can be anything. It can be a material, it can be a designer or an artists. Of course music is an important factor as well. The most interesting musician is probably Claire Boucher, better known as Grimes. I don't really know how to describe the music she's making because there's no one to which I could compare her. She's calling her genre the "ADD-music" and wikipedia is labeling it as indietronica, experimental, dream pop, dark wave, synthpop, industrial. Grimes is not only popular for her music but also for her extraordinary style when it comes to fashion. I recently discovered that Grimes was modelling for Iris van Herpen's first ready-to-wear collection Phy-tha-go-rash. Despite that she has some inspiring music videos (which are also directed by her). I know people think her music and especially her videos are strange but listen yourself!
