Love this song. And now its video has arrived filled with what feels like to us sly nods to films (Blade, Stargate, Alien) and a whole lot of cyberpunk. It is, though, and according to Grimes “it’s our take on Dante’s inferno. The circles of hell reflect more contemporary issues though. We shot a bunch at the Salton Sea which is basically an apocalyptic wasteland filled with dead fish because of human carelessness, the bullet hole hallway a la Korn ‘Freak On A Leash’ etc etc. If you look closely you can find clues but in the usual fashion it is also abstract enough to just be a trippy visual accompaniment to the song.”
Have a look for yourself.
