Canadian synth-pop singer Grimes made a splash in the last year, her standout album Visions and her distinctive fashion — both on show in the weird and wonderful “Oblivion” video — earning critical acclaim from Pitchfork and W Magazine the New York Times alike. Already a darling of the fringe, she made her American television debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night, and we have to imagine she earned herself a few more fans with her performance. Draped in a long red robe and standing in a pile of flower petals, she sang “Genesis” while two women danced behind her in jets of stream. If her etheral-coo of a voice isn’t enough to charm you, then her impressive managing of the keyboard, mixer, and mic all at the same time is sure to get you.
