Grimes released a video for her new song “Go” today and it is looks like a really sick party in techno hell mixed with the same post-apocalyptic Mad Max universe from her “Genesis” video. The video features some things I really stand for, like moto boots, scoop neck black tops, mesh, ripped black tights, and SPORTY SLIDE SANDALS!
Like, girl, we are on the same wavelength or something.
She directed the video with her brother. In regards to her inspiration, she posted on her Tumblr:
It’s supposed to be dante’s inferno (abstractly), different layers of hell etc. super visually inspired by like x men, metal gear, dune.
Yeah, I see it. The song is a change in direction for Grimes so I’m really interested to hear what her next album is going to be like.
Plus like, fish eye lens? The last time I saw that might have been in a Missy Elliott video.
