Music Video: Grimes – “Vanessa”

It seems Montreal will never stop pumping out indie talent, and one of the latest artists getting buzz from the city is Grimes. Although a full-length entitled Halfaxa was released last year, it looks like her recent split with d-Eon, Darkbloom, is getting a bit more press. Relying heavily on various layers of spaced-out vocals and brooding electronic melodies, Grimes creates dark music while still harboring pop sensibilities.

Above is the video for “Vanessa,” a track from the Darkbloom split. It’s weird, so it fits the music, but my only concern lies in whether or not Grimes was serious about the dance moves she unleashes in this production. Let’s hope not.
