A lot of people became familiar with Grimes when she dropped Visions, her third album, in 2012, but she was making great music well before that. Her second album was 2010’s Halfaxa, and you can now download a track that might be from that era. Grimes uploaded the song below to her Soundcloud in 2011, with the message, “i dunno this is like a halfaxa cut that didnt make it i think,” but it was (presumably) made private and then public again, since it just popped up at the top of our Soundcloud feed.
However it got there, it’s a gorgeous track, with the delicately floating vocals and lush melodies that have marked out Grimes’ work to this point all in full effect. Grab a free download below.
