Video of the Moment #1943: Grimes

By on Thursday, 29th October 2015 at 6:00 pm

Canadian Claire Boucher, far more famous as her artist moniker Grimes, is getting ready to release her newest album ‘Art Angels’ on the 8th of November, which isn’t far off at all now. After polarising her fanbase with ‘REALiTi’ and ‘Go’, the latter of which was collaboration between her and Blood Diamonds, then decided to pitch an entire completed album after getting disillusioned with it, we had no idea what direction she was going to go in for her next record.

Her newest video release this week teases with two tracks from the upcoming ‘Art Angels’, and the actual visuals were directed by Grimes herself. ‘Flesh Without Blood’, and ‘Life in the Vivid Dream’ to a lesser extent, seem to suggest the new album has Boucher going in a far more pop direction than she did on 2012’s ‘Visions’, which I included in my top albums of that year. I’m very curious to hear what everyone thinks of this new material. Have a watch of the mental video in which Boucher herself stars as several different characters including a Victorian vampire and that yes, as YouTube commenters have already pointed out, contains a particularly noisome pink cowboy hat.

Keen on reading what else we’ve got here at TGTF on Grimes? Right this way.
