Grimes Serves Choreo With Sword Fighters in 'Violence'

Grimes Serves Choreo With Sword Fighters in 'Violence'

Slowly but surely, Grimes is prepping her comeback. Following "We Appreciate Power" with protege Hana and a demo for "Pretty Dark," the unlikely pop star's first album since 2015's Art Angels is imminent.

The latest taste of Miss_Anthrop0cene, reportedly out later this year, comes in the song and video to "Violence," a collaborative track with DJ/producer i_o. The strident synth-pop tune boasts a sticky "you wanna make me bad" refrain either about a bad relationship or the dire state of the world. Lest we forget, pop music contains multitudes! Either way, "Violence" is threaded together by Grimes' otherworldly harmonies.

For her self-directed video, Grimes, alternately clad in a face mask and earth goddess garments, gamely performs choreography (wind machine and all) alongside a group of dancers armed with swords and wearing looks straight out of Final Fantasy. Also, some pretty cute robots make an appearance. This, from a woman whose fitness routine and... spiritual alignment... has involved sensory deprivation tanks, sword fights, screaming, and an experimental eye surgery. See it all go down, below.
