To the point: Grimes laid some fucking magical melodious eggs and today 7 music videos were hatched. Boom. Some are good, a few are ok, and two are nothing short of some fucking magic.
Grimes, the land mermaid, can be seen unleashing her #partygoblin with her best-friend Hana, aka “Princess Pirate” and brother Mac “the Jizz-Viking” in dazzling and lavish environments.
Watch as the sexy duo seduce pieces of fabric on the marble steps of your favorite fantasy.
Four songs are from her most recent album, Art Angels, and three tracks from her friend and collaborator HANA’s self-titled EP. In a series of Tweets, Grimes says she, HANA and Grimes‘ brother Mac Boucher shot the videos guerrilla-style over a two-week period while traveling through Europe.
“Just us and a phone, so maybe don’t expect anything too fancy.”
mera” and “Avalanche” are from HANA. You can watch each video individually or as a continuous film Grimes is calling The AC!D Reign Chronicles.
Grimes was born Claire Boucher in Vancouver, BC Canada in 1988. She attended high school in Vancouver but moved to Montreal shortly after to write and perform under the name Grimes.
She went to McGill University but was eventually expelled for missing over a year’s worth of classes.
In 2009, Grimes and her boyfriend built a 20-foot houseboat named the “Velvet Glove in Cast Iron.” The plan was to sail it down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans.
She likes to wear elaborate outfits onstage and incorporate dancers into hershows but says festival settings are not really ideal for those kinds of elaboratesetups.
Grimes says that “It’s a bad way to perform” because you don’t get a soundcheck and it’s just not fun.
Although she writes her own songs, Grimes can’t read music.
Grimes is superstitious and believes she has a good show whenever she sees a bulldog on the street.
