New Music: Grimes

Claire Boucher, AKA Grimes teased Go along with a few other new tracks at NYC’s Governors Ball earlier this month, but today the new single, produced alongside LA’s Blood Diamonds, was given its first spin on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show, and I’m really excited about it. It’s the first major release since the phenomenal success of 2012s Visions (an album entirely recorded on GarageBand) but Go feels much more crafted and deliberate than the floaty and sparse ambient electro-pop soundscapes of Genesis or Oblivion. It features loftier beats and an EDM drop worthy of any club hit. It’s different, but in all the right ways, plus it’s really good to see Grimes back doing her thing so well.
