Today, Grimes reveals the new self-directed video for ‘California’ filmed in Los Angeles and Paris. The video features cameos from singer Megan James of Purity Ring, musician HANA, model Eric Cheng, musician Born Gold, and rising star Mac Boucher. In the last week, Grimes performed ‘Flesh Without Blood’ on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The LA Times called Grimes’ Coachella set “thrillingly relentless” while Vice Noisey says she’s “poised to take over the whole world” and Rolling Stone called her a “mad scientist behind the control panel.” This spring, Grimes graced the covers of Teen Vogue and AnOther Magazine, was featured in Vanity Fair’s Disrupters portfolio and Elle’s Women in Music issue, and currently stars in the campaign for Stella McCartney’s Pop fragrance.
Grimes will perform at Lollapalooza, FYF, Moogfest and Hangout Music Festival and will open for Florence & The Machine throughout May.
Art Angels had prime placement on basically every 2015 End of Year list, with #1 spots from NME, Stereogum, Gorilla Vs. Bear and others. Jon Pareles of the NY Times called the album “a solo tour de force,” Stereogum said, “In 2015, nothing sounded better,” and Rolling Stone called it a “triumph.” Time Magazine named ‘Flesh Without Blood’ the #1 song of the year while iTunes named ‘Art Angels’ the #1 Indie Album of 2015 and it finished out the year at #1 most added on CMJ Radio. Within the past year, Grimes graced the covers of The FADER, Nylon, Dazed and Confused, NME, London’s ES Magazine, Flare and more.
