Now that EDC Las Vegas has come and gone, let’s talk about Grimes‘ newest collaboration with Tale of Us’s ANYMA. For her set over the weekend, she opened with ‘Welcome To The Opera‘. This is her unreleased track from her forthcoming album Book 1. And she nailed it with this one.
Everything from the eerie melody to the strobing lights and her flowing atop the stage, the track is otherworldly. When she says “Welcome To The Opera”, it drops and it is haunting with a powerful bassline and sporadic synths, courtesy of ANYMA. As the audience gazed into the lights of Cosmic Meadow and became entranced in the first four minutes of her set, Saturday only just began.
The Canadian singer/songwriter played a varied set with energy levels ranging from high and low. She played tracks from Funkin Matt, Boris Brejcha, a remix of Prince’s ‘When Doves Cry’, AC Slater, Felix Jaehn, and more. Halfway through she hits the crowd with deadmau5 and Lights‘ track ‘When The Summer Dies’ and sprinkles in some singles from the late i_O. ‘Shinigami Eyes‘ were also played, another track from her upcoming Fairies Cum First EP. She’s indicated two albums may come because of the artwork.
Her set doesn’t consist of all her tracks, but she includes a variety of different mashups and stylish tunes. Her techno odyssey was a complete success as she continues to take on the underground scene. Known for her eclectic aesthetic and “ADD” music, her work has been likened to various artists, including Björk, Siouxsie Sioux, and Enya. She experiments with elements of art pop, synthpop, witch house, baroque pop, dream pop, ambient, electro-R&B, and darkwave. We don’t have the official release, as she states below. But we can anticipate it will be coming out soon.
