Releasing the album Visions earlier this year, to near universal praise, Grimes has barely stopped since; she’s graced numerous magazine covers, made her 1st live TV performances in both the UK + the US, played shows across 3 continents (including a train tour of Canada with Diplo + Skrillex) & has just been nominated for the prestigious Polaris Prize in her native Canada.

Teasing her fans with a trailer for the “Genesis” video earlier in the week, the full version is now online. Set in the Californian desert, it’s a futurist tour-de-force, directy inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s painting, The Seven Deadly Sins & the Four Last Things, while making nods towards the trash-can glamour of Jean Paul Gaultier & the post-everything surrealism of Jamie Hewlett’s Tank Girl.

Having just played in Japan last weekend, her next trip to Europe this month will focus mainly on the UK with an appearance in the Dance Tent at Reading & Leeds confirmed this weekend + two long sold out shows at London’s Heaven among the shows scheduled. It all kicks off tonight at Space in Ibiza where she’s performing at Richie Hawtin’s Enter. After the European tour, she’s back to N. America for a comprehensive tour with a lot of shows already sold out before return to Europe to play at In:Motion in Bristol before heading off for a run of dates all around the mainland. She caps the year off with her 1st shows in Australia & then plays Coachella’s inaugural cruise which sets sail for the Bahamas & Jamaica in the middle of December. All dates right after the video.
