I heard Grimes on a podcast yesterday, and CANNOT STOP with her now! It’s nearly 24 hours later, and I’ve been playing her new album, “Art Angels”, non-stop. It’s a frantic, energy-laden call to arms unlike anything I’ve listened to before: steeped in pop and electronic sensibilities, and glazed with a darkness I can’t help but be enchanted by. You know how fairy tales were before Disney got ahold of them? That’s Grimes.
I can’t help but wonder what her creative process is; what she surrounds herself with, if she has a favorite talisman, if she’d want to come over and make a vision board together. I know, basically, we should be best friends.
