Grimes announces new artist cooperative, listen to the first single

Claire Boucher aka Grimes loves to keep busy. On the eve of releasing her highly-anticipated new album, she is also pioneering her own artist cooperative called Eerie Organization, focused on helping artists get recognition without sacrificing any of their independence. In a press release Boucher says:

Eerie Organization is an artist co-operative founded by Grimes that exists to help artists accomplish more than they would be able to on their own, without sacrificing any of their independence in the process. Although Eerie Organization will release music, it’s not a staffed record label and will not be accepting submissions. Eerie will be releasing Grimes’ upcoming album in Canada only. Future Eerie projects could take many forms, reflecting Grimes’ own mercurial, multidisciplinary approach to creativity.

The first artist signed to the collective is fellow Canadian Nicole Dollanganger, with her album Natural Born Losers to be released on October 9th. Speaking about the first time Grimes heard Dollanganger, she says, “It blew up my brain so hard that I literally started Eerie to fucking put it out because it’s a crime against humanity for this music not to be heard.” And she is right. Get a taste below, with the sweet electronic dreamscape that is first single You’re So Cool.

With an endorsement like that, stay tuned to hear a lot more from this up and coming songstress.
