Claire Boucher’s 2012 album Visions is sometimes wrongly called her debut, because hardly anyone heard the two records before it. Full of kaleidoscopic jewels of avant-pop greatness (including the Eircom ad soundtrack Oblivion), it was a joy from start to finish. In the gap between that record and this, Boucher scrapped an entire album because it sounded “too depressing” – and, a little predictably, Art Angels feels like a grab for some mainstream action.
