Darkbloom is a split EP by Canadian musicians Grimes and d'Eon. It was released on April 18, 2011 as a joint release through Grimes' and d'Eon's respective labels, Arbutus Records and Hippos in Tanks. Darkbloom was conceived together by Grimes and d'Eon but recorded separately.

Grimes directed the video for "Vanessa" herself after reportedly being unhappy with the video made for "Crystal Ball".[4][5] It was Claire Boucher's directorial debut. She also directed and co-starred in the D'Eon video for "Transparency." Both videos were released on the same day in April 2011. Tim Kelly's video for "Crystal Ball" had been filmed earlier but was released in May.
