Claire boucher has spent years paying her dues to the world of outsider music & it’s given her all the ingredients for the perfect pop album: catchy but never saccharine, touching but never pandering, leftfield but never alienating – it’s no exaggeration to say that this is a masterpiece.
we adored 2012's ‘visions’ (so much so we made it our album of the year) & we’ve fallen hard for ‘art angels’ too – simply put, there’s no one else out there that we feel can make pop feel this real, this personal & this infectious. “'art angels' is an album everyone should own”- nme album of the year; “what's most exciting within 'Art Angels' is the sheer will & fearlessness of Boucher's fight to be heard and seen on her own terms” – 8.5/10 pitchfork, "the same dark candy, with even more weird and wonderful flavour combinations" 5/5 - the telegraph.
