On Thursday Grimes Delivers Sci-Fi Inferno In Go Video was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) The story of "Go," the latest single from Grimes, made news a couple months back with the revelation that it was originally written by the Toronto songwriter and producer for pop queen Rihanna and then rejected.
But that shouldn't have bothered Grimes too much, as she was left with a hooky anthem to record for herself (along with Blood Diamonds), give away for free to fans, and now release a music video for it that is described as a "sci-fi Inferno."
The capitalization of Inferno is intentional, as in Dante's 14th century epic poem, which might be a strange reference point coming from anyone but the world's biggest Game of Thrones fan.
Grimes, aka Claire Boucher, had this to say about the clip, which she co-directed with her brother Mac Boucher, via press release: "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. Haha, but in the usual fashion it is also abstract enough to just be a trippy visual accompaniment to the song."
