Recently, Grimes and her Canadian countryman Blood Diamonds wrote a song called “Go” for Rihanna. Rihanna, or her people, turned it down. And now Grimes has taken the song for herself, debuting it onstage at the Governors Ball festival earlier this month. Today, we get to hear the studio version of the song, and it’s a fascinating example of what happens when Grimes pushes her spectral, strobing pop style into a more readily digestible direction. Its gigantic globs of crowd-pleasing bass don’t distract from its straight-up beauty at all, and if this is Grimes’ new direction, I am all for it. Peep it below.
Great vibe on this record. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
