Laneway Presents and Penny Drop are excited to share details of GRIMES’ Laneway Festival sideshows.

Back down under for the first time since 2012, Grimes will be toting her hugely anticipated new album Art Angels (out Friday 6 November). Check out the first single, “Flesh Without Blood“.

GRIMES’ last album (and the first via indie giants 4ADVisions gave us some of the most edgy, exciting and addictive music of the last decade. A truly boundary-pushing artist who refuses to be categorised, Grimes has surprised fans and critics at every turn. Don’t miss these special shows.

“A new kind of pop auteur” – The New Yorker

“With a wildly creative and often subversive aesthetic, she’s created some of the most unique records and videos of the decade, drawing from easily recognisable and esoteric styles to create an ultra-modern audio-visual amalgam” – Dazed

Grimes will be supported by emerging American artist HANA. Hana’s debut track “Clay“ – co-produced by Blood Diamonds’ Michael Diamond – and captivating follow-up ‘Avalanche’ were released earlier in the year and she quickly went from complete obscurity to becoming one of the most buzz-worthy, up-and-coming artists around.
