Genesis - Grimes - Visions (2012, 4AD)
Video directed by Claire Boucher (Grimes), 2012.
Everyone’s favourite reverb-loving singer has just released a self-directed new video to accompany Genesis, one of the finest works from her latest LP Visions. And although I’m not normally in the business of simply re-blogging other people’s writing, I don’t think I could describe the video any better than Pitchfork’s Carrie Battan:
It bears no shortage of things to gawk at. Claire holding a python in the back of a livery cab! Claire wearing a fitted cap that says “PUSSY” across it! Sword fighting in the desert! Crawling around in the the woods and strutting down the streets of L.A. with a cast of characters ripped straight out of “Mortal Kombat”! Grimes, you’ve officially out-fucking-Grimes’d yourself.
