grimm / sam herle

a glistening bridge appears before you....




Grimm is the moniker and indie pop music project of Vancouver-based artist Sam Herle, formerly of the band Elf Pity. The project intertwines fantastical, genre-fiction inspired themes with everyday realism, and draws on an eclectic range of influences including electropop, early video game music, and folk.

Sam Herle is also a multi-media artist and illustrator, and has a BFA from Emily Carr University. They are a co-creator of the virtual exhibition space 'Cyber Warehouse' (featured on the cover of the November/December 2020 edition of Discorder Magazine and in Exclaim! Magazine). Similar projects they have worked on include the 3D exhibition ‘Queer Digital Intimacies’, and the online sound installation ‘Orbs Orbs Orbs’. These and other projects are elaborated on *here*.

Grimm’s debut album ‘Electro Folklore’ was released in September 2021 on Kingfisher Bluez, and since then they have released two singles, ‘Last Halloween’, and ‘What Are You Gonna Do, Cry?’.
