A joint release by L.A’s Hippos In Tanks and Montreal’s Arbutus Records, Darkbloom is the new split EP from d’Eon and Canadian singer Claire Boucher, aka Grimes. Even though both sides of the record were produced independently, the project was conceptualised together and promises a whole host of eerie, cerebral electronica. Available digitally and on 12-inch vinyl from 19 April, the release will be followed with a UK tour from Grimes in May.
