Grimes’ video for “Vanessa” is almost an anti-pop feature. While it includes choreographed dancing and some lusty female vocals over a rhythm-heavy track, the dance moves are pretty experimental and the music is far more out there than anything on the Top 40. The focus is placed on these dancers as they sway both forward and in reverse, put on tribal-esque makeup, and shift through different color schemes. And that’s before it gets weird.
“Vanessa” is from the group’s 12″ called Darkbloom. It’s currently available through Arbutus Records.
