Grimes - "Oblivion" Video

Awesome video alert: Grimes’ restless, dazed electro-pop bounce “Oblivion” now has a video, and it’s a collection of images of the stylish and surprisingly divisive Montreal iconoclast Claire Boucher, looking radiantly happy, singing her song in all sorts of unlikely locations, including a motocross exhibition and a roomful of sweaty dudes moshing for no reason. In fact, the video is awfully heavy on shirtless dudes, and there’s also a quick flash of dude-asscheek that renders this borderline NSFW. Emily Kai Bock directs. Watch the video and download the track below.

  10. You know, it’d probably be even better if the song was named skyrim.

  11. Nice, I like how they address the lip-synching thing in music videos by making it someone singing along to the music on their headphones.

  12. Thank Grimes for all the abs.

  13. can i say something…

    before anyone else names their song “oblivion,” can someone please do a mash up of John Vanderslice’s Oblivion with Mastadon’s “Oblivion” (or at least the dub-step remix)?

  14. I’m sorry, I’ve tried…..this does nothing for me.
