On her breakthrough single, electro-pop savant Claire Boucher drops sugar-dust vocals over a thwunking synth loop, sounding perfectly dreamy until you listen to the words: "I never walk alone after dark. . . . /Someone could break your neck/Coming up behind you and you'd never have a clue." The catchiness only makes it creepier.
