Music Monday: Grimes – Oblivion

NEWS | | Leave a Comment

It goes without saying that Canadian artist Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, is effortlessly cool in her video for latest single Oblivion. Every outfit is perfectly pitched and even her headphone-boombox-lonerism only further endears her to the viewer. The track itself is a dark pop number, all floaty vocals over pounding ’80s synths making it sound like a soundtrack number from a forgotten obscure cult film.

With its scenes of throwback transatlantic nostalgia somehow still seeming fresh, this video could rekindle a love of motorcross for boys and have girls across the country dying their fringe pink.

Grimes’s album Visions is out now and available from iTunes.
