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 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.
