Grimes Drops Brilliant Video For ‘Kill V Maim’

Written By the interns on 01/20/2016

Canadian art-pop star Grimes (Claire Boucher) has dropped the cyberpunk-meets-pop princess video for Kill V Maim and it’s every bit as brilliant as Art Angels. Self-directed in collaboration with brother Mac Boucher, it visually epitomises every audio element of the song, featuring Boucher’s fantastical art placed on top of a Mad Max-meets-Anime-meets-Tarantino storyline. The clip also draws on her punk/pop fusion by juxtaposing a goth-punk, blood-soaked rave with a bevy of girls perched atop a hot pink car (with a personalised ‘GRIMES’ numberplate) in a beautifully perfect way that only Grimes could get away with.

You can check out Grimes when she’s here for Laneway, as well as at her Sydney & Melbourne sideshows. Dates below:
