watch grimes debut new music at beach goth festival
While we eagerly await new music and a video that is slated to drop this week, fan-shot gig footage gives our first insight into Claire Boucher’s next record.
Grimes kicked off her Rhinestone Cowgirls tour with a performance at The Growlers' Beach Goth 4 festival in California at the weekend, giving fans a first-listen preview of tracks from her much-anticipated, about-to-drop next album, Art Angels.
Several new tracks were captured in a fan video from the gig, including one that many are identifying in the YouTube comments as the aptly-titled Scream, in which Grimes screams over a heavy bassline, and another that may be the as-yet unreleased track Ya Vas Luubil.
Grimes also posted (and then deleted) a video clip on her Instagram at the weekend, captioned "Rehearsal," that was said to show the influence of industrial music generally, and Nine Inch Nails specifically, on her new music.
