Do you like CHVRCHES? I'm quite a fan of Clearest Blue.

I haven't really listened to Austra much recently, because I sort of burned myself out on them in 2011 when I discovered them (I made the mistake of listening to much, which often ruins bands for me ). They also do TERRIBLE images/videos IMO, ugh. I like the metallic quality to her voice as well, and when she taps dark she does it so well! That style is hit and miss for me, because if you don't do it right, it sounds so screechy. I actually found a band recently that does just that, and I love it:

I was actually disappointed with Chvrches new album and it really didn't get me anywhere feeling like their first. I tried to force myself to give it a re listen but it just seems like they're missing something.
Grimes I am mixed. Some of her songs lull me to sleep, others are really catchy, some are just a nice to listen for a very specific mood and some are hair raising joy.

@Hard and @Forever
I'm with you both on Grimes. I *should* like it but her voice and music just sound too generic indie electronic for my tastes.
To be clear, I only like Clearest Blue. I'm actually not a fan of the lead's singer's voice -- I think she sounds like Minnie Mouse on helium. I do appreciate their production, but I think it's a shame that they're let down by such a vocalist.

I'm cross-posting this from my private blog.
This video is so me.
The song is my genre. The visuals are my aesthetic. The lyrics are relatable.
And I feel like in a way, it sort of describes me. I mean I love the original song too, but specifically this male cover of it. (And not just because he's got, like, my dream voice.)
In a way, it sort of describes my experience as a trans guy with a more "traditionally feminine" personality. As far as gender stereotypes go, I'm more soft than tough, more gentle than firm, more "feminine" than "masculine." Which is funny and ironic, because I have absolutely no doubts in my mind that I'm not a girl. Which probably seems strange to other people, if not a contradiction.
Everyone's experience is different, though. This is just how I am.
I'm obsessed with this right now.
