GENESIS

as promised, the video for Grimes' Genesis is here (directed by Claire Boucher herself), and it bears no shortage of things to gawk at. Claire holding a python in the back of a livery cab! Claire wearing a fitted dress 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 Combat! Grimes, you’ve officially out-fucking-Grimes’d yourself.

grimes - genesis (video trailer)
Grimes put out a preview for the new video for Genesis, one of the more popular songs of her recent popular album, Visions.  
like everything Grimes does it’s very grimes-y: eerie, beautiful, addicting and a little obnoxious - the idea of a trailer for a music video is kind of indulgent.
nonetheless it’s very well crafted - featuring an otherworldly Claire Boucher in the desert, dancing through the lights of a secluded automobile to a back drop of spiritual Grimes cries - getting you perfectly inspired to watch (but now wait longingly for) the real video.

last night, Grimes stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon for her U.S. TV debut (after making her UK television debut back in April). she performed Genesis from Visions, aided by two backing dancers and a formidable red kimono.
