Bask in the glory of another visually bombastic new Grimes video clip
One of the world's most exciting pop artists continues to do things her way.
Ms. Clare Boucher (Grimes) is close to the most talented and exciting artists in the pop realm today. Time and time again she has proven her ability to single-handedly write, produce, direct and star in her releases, both audio and visual.
This week marks the release of the rampant clip for Kill V. Maim, the second tune off her fourth studio album Art Angels. Shot in Toronto and co-directed by her brother Mac Boucher, the video takes us through a splice of farfetched scenes with Grimes and her goons rocking out at a deserted subway station, enjoying a blood rave (I’d say something closer to an orgy) and thrashing about in a bizarre pink SUV. As with a host of her video pieces, the attire is totally odd and original. A known fan of cinema, it’s obvious Boucher has pulled inspiration from the likes of Tarantino’s Kill Bill and the Blade Trilogy. An erratic clip suiting a clinic in what modern day pop should sound like.
If you want a taste of the gorgeous Grimes, she features on the bill for St Jerome’s Laneway Festival 2016. Following this, Clare’s back to Europe to queen a stream of headline shows, before heading to the Mecca that is Coachella. Stream the creepy rendition of Kill V Maim below:
