Somehow, in a sea of at least 5 million other people (I mean, views on youtube), I still feel like I’m the only person who likes Grimes right now. I’ve had a lot of recent, interesting conversations surrounding this discussion, which all basically ended the same with the person giving their opinion saying “Old Grimes Or Bust.”
I don’t know why I’m such a die-hard Grimes fan. Honestly I could not care less about the production quality of her music videos or album art or lyrics or stage presence (or lack thereof) – I don’t really listen to music for those reasons???? EXCEPT – MAJOR EXCEPT – This video is kind of cool because she’s literally just sitting in space and it’s essentially Gravity feat. Sandra Bullock 2.0.
Side note, my friend saw her at a restaurant when he was in Hawaii a few months ago and the table she was with ordered Shrimp Scampi and for some reason that just adds to my adoration for her and makes the floating empty hole inside me reserved for artists I have no real connection to that much bigger.
All of that aside, I really love this song.
If you’re done with that and feel pleased and haven’t closed this window out, listen to this one, too:
