That self-imposed artistic solitude recalls something from another interview she did with The Creators Project about Visions and the way it progresses. “The first songs are really imbued with how beautiful if feels to create music,” she said. “As it moves along, it gets more intense, and aggressive, and weird, less straightforward pop. To me it culminates at ‘Be A Body’ and then starts to unravel. It ends sadly. The conclusion is a realization of loneliness.”
Hey, hi, I wrote this thing about talking to / seeing / “thinking about” Grimes. It’s kind of long, but I’d appreciate if you checked it out. Big ups to Tyler Coates for editing it from a gaudy 2,850 words to a more manageable 2,750. I’m going to go vomit uncontrollably for the next six hours, if you don’t mind.
