Video: Grimes "Oblivion"
- Words: Patric Fallon
One of our favorite tracks from the XLR8R Pick'd Visions LP by Grimes, "Oblivion" receives an appropriately weird and personable music video here. Conceived, filmed, and produced by director Emily Kai Bock and cinematographer Evan Prosofsky, the clip finds Montreal-based artist Claire Boucher meandering about at a dirt-bike rally, dancing around a men's locker room, and hanging out with the denizens of high school football games throughout the four-minute piece—effectively juxtaposing her girly charm with plenty of machismo and testosterone-fueled activities.
