The incredible Grimes has done an amazing cover story for The Fader. The piece discusses the recording of her forthcoming LP which we cannot wait for! Read the piece here.
Grimes unleashed the epic new clip for ‘Go’ ft. Bloods Diamonds overnight.
Directed by Roco-Prime (Claire and Mac Boucher) Claire says; “It’s our take on Dante’s inferno. The circles of hell reflect more contemporary issues though. We shot a bunch at the salton sea which is basically an apocalyptic wasteland filled with dead fish because of human carelessness, the bullet hole hallway a la korn freak on a leash etc etc. If you look closely you can find clues. Haha, but in the usual fashion it is also abstract enough to just be a trippy visual accompaniment to the song.”
