Is Grimes’ ‘Genesis’ The Music Video Of The Year?


Grimes has followed up one of the best music videos of the year – ‘Oblivion’, directed by her pal Emily Kai Bock, released March – with another monster. The ‘Genesis’ film sees Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) and her crew seemingly re-enacting a battle from Xena: Warrior Princess at a Castlemorton rave held in 2112. Snakes are stroked, maces swung and the costumes look like they were provided by Cyberdog. The star is in coquetteish, preppy mode, a cool Cleopatra in a dystopian universe. It’s super stylish, classy and atmospheric. Props to the director….Claire Boucher herself.
