GRIMES

REALiTi

Just in case you we’re busy, dearest Vancity native, Grimes, dropped “REALiTi” earlier this month and I really like it!!!!!!

The song was originally meant for her follow-up album to Visions, which she scrapped because it “sucked”. Here’s what she had to say about it:

This song was never finished. its a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha.  xo

Grimes b, this is one impressive mess. “REALiTi” has much of the token trancy and electropop elements that we loved on her Visions album, however the structure of the song (the bridge especially) and the motivating lyrics are all leaning towards a catchy, feel good anthem. It’s great because Grimes, who seemed like the cool girl you admire from afar, is suddenly very relatable.

Not sure when she will be releasing her new album, but I’m hoping the poppy trend will continue.
