Vanessa” is one of the best songs from Grimes’ young catalog, but it’s also one of the oldest, so it’s probably no surprise that Claire Boucher decided to tweak it some in a recent live performance for the BBC, making it a little sparer and tighter. Listen to that below and while you’re there, check out the Kuhrye-oo video for “Give In (For The Fame) that Boucher co-directed and appears in.

Visions is out now on 4AD/Arbutus. The Six Flags location from the Kuhrye-oo is indeed the same one from this spooky video depicting the abandoned New Orleans Six Flags, a ruin of an amusement park that couldn’t be resuscitated post-Katrina.
