Grimes - 'Genesis'

Sex, sweetness and progressive synth-pop

Grimes - 'Genesis'

From a girl who denounced God at 12, you might expect something more unholy than this Noah’s Ark of sex, sweetness and progressive synth-pop that sits somewhere between ‘Deep Cuts’-era Knife, ‘Hollaback Girl’ and the soundtrack to some cunts-in-capes computer game. But subtlety is [a]Grimes[/a]’ virtue, and this sees 4AD’s new signing on peak form.
