It’s no secret that we here at The TLA are massive fans of electronic artist Grimes. Having alrady released one of the best albums of 2012 in Visions and signed up to play festival dates with Skrillex, here she teams up with producer Blood Diamonds to try to create in their words the perfect pop song… and they come very close, albeit a pop song from another planet. Halo drums are used throughout while Grimes’ vocals float over the beats. The verses lead up to a pleading/glorious chorus and then it all drifts away as quickly as it came.
This will be Blood Diamonds (Michael Diamond) first commercial release in a year and is out next month on 4AD Records.
