The Canadian electronic phenomenon Claire Elise Boucher who goes by the moniker of Grimes released her latest single, “Go”, in late June. The track which features the collaboration of Blood Diamonds was initially intended for Rihanna, as reported by Pitchfork. Earlier today, the accompanying music video directed by Roco-Prime comprised of Grimes herself and her brother Mac Boucher was released. The 26-year-old multifaceted talent released this statement in a press release:
“It’s our take on Dante’s inferno. The circles of hell reflect more contemporary issues though. We shot a bunch at the salton sea which is basically an apocalyptic wasteland filled with dead fish because of human carelessness, the bullet hole hallway a la korn freak on a leash etc etc. If you look closely you can find clues. Haha, but in the usual fashion it is also abstract enough to just be a trippy visual accompaniment to the song.”
