Crazy video from Grimes for her new release Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream.
Just last week, Claire Boucher aka Grimes casually – and characteristically – dropped the artwork for her new album via Twitter. At the same time she also gave it its title, Art Angels, skirting the usual industry scheduling and scurry of press releases and publicists. She had every right to share it so easily on Twitter: she had actually designed and illustrated the artwork for the album herself. And not only that: she has created a uniqueillustrated cover for each of the tracks featured on her album. You can go check those out via the Grimes Tumblr.
Boucher has also directed the video for ‘Flesh Without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream’, the first sonic glimpse we get of Art Angels, visualised in a mad mash of cartoon sensibilities and Victorian era getup, a collision of pop and high culture.
