The last time I saw Grimes live on stage was a couple of years ago at Panorama Bar in Berlin, together with some semi-naked dudes jumping up and down next to her, living the dream – or something like that. I truly loved her third studio album Visions. Genesis, Oblivion and Vanessa were amazing songs, which I still listen to regularly on my iPod. And yes, I still own an iPod. Wow.
A couple of years later I was quite sure that Grimes was just another one of those electronic one-hit wonders – and that made me quite sad. But, man, I was wrong, so wrong. Her new album is called Art Angels, It’ll hopefully be released quite soon. Her first new music video is actually a mixture of two songs named Flesh Without Blood and Life In The Vivid Dream.
What you see? A basketball court, Marie Antoinette and dollar bills – and blood, much blood. What you hear? The first part is a true pop song, with an energetic melody, the second part a slow, strong ballad. I’ve got bad experiences with musicians, I once really liked – and who decide to take on a new course in their creative life. But it’s Grimes, boys and girls, it’s gonna be great – for sure!
