Grimes is an amazing woman. She is an edgy and powerful artist, she is funny, and she even does awesome things like telling kids to go vote. There are a lot of artists out there today who fit their brand or music style more than they put themselves into the music so it is refreshing to hear a girl like Grimes make awesome music coming from her beautiful, mysterious mind. Last week, she dropped a music video for her single Flesh Without Blood and it is one of the best music videos to drop this year.
- Flesh Without Blood is a damn catchy pop song with an edgy production underneath it. This isn't a standard production yet it is. The way Grimes blends her unique sound into a traditional pop arrangement makes me appreciate the song on both levels as a good pop song and a well composed track.
- The production gets me excited and smiling everytime I hear it. As a 19 year old college student who thinks he is too cool to dance at a party, I have no shame in admitting that I danced around my room to this song whilst folding my laundry. It is that type of feel good song and don't be surprised when I see Grimes that I will be singing the lyrics at the top of my lungs as I dance right in front of the stage.
- This song is not a break up song!! This song, according to Grimes and the Internet, is about change. We are naturally afraid of change as human beings and become complacent with the way a person acts, not the person themselves. In terms of artists, I enjoy Grimes as a person and human being. It is a plus that she makes super boppable music. It may not be like her other stuff, but Flesh Without Blood is still a Grimes song and that is why I love it.
Listen and watch Flesh Without Blood below and become a fan girl like me. Her record 'Art Angels' will be available on November 6th. (Preordered <3)
