Though I was originally attracted to this track by its deliciously quirky cover art (courtesy of nu-rave musicians/artists Elite Gymnastics) and the ever-present Grimes namedrop, the music contained within certainly lives up to its packaging. It seems like Claire Boucher is 2012’s post-Lana Del Rey indie music queen (all her intimate dive-bar shows have been selling out and she’s constantly harassed by Carles of Hipster Runoff) and as such should be featured on every hit experimental electronic track that comes out, and “Phone Sex” is no exception. The beauty of the song is more in her vocal performance than in the electronic backdrop, though both fuse seamlessly together into an energetic dance number that sounds just as good as the best of Visions. “Phone Sex” is the lead single off of Blood Diamonds’ upcoming debut, What, though I’m sure it’ll be tough to follow up with a first taste this good.
