Grimes fifth album ‘Miss Anthropocene’ is here in all its beauty and weirdness that we expect.
After a first listen, it’s very difficult to categorise her body of work into any specific genre. Grimes just lets her ideas flail in the wind splendidly like a wacky waving inflatable tube guy. It feels like a series of contrasting song ideas that don’t sonically interconnect in a narrative. It’s the Grimes way!
A notable mention has to go to her cyberpunk drum n bass anthem (we said it, ANTHEM!) 4ÆM that’s a mix of her sweet falsetto style distant vocals, juxtaposed with a mean bass line that induces that feeling of dance floor madness.
The lead up to the release has been eventful for the busy Canadian who’s gone above and beyond to ensure everything was ready for the album promo.
Supposed to promote song but 2 delirious to think of words😪 , pregnant al nighter to finish music video was unwise Haha but thanks for tuning in 🤍 ^_^ we r back lto work on the next round !
