Grimes – “Oblivion”

It’s no easy feat to construct a tune that can punch you in the gut, than pick you back up, dust you off, and give you a kiss on the cheek.  ‘Oblivioin’ the newest track from Grimes does just that.  On one side you have a chunky and simple beat that provides a core, or some sort of grounding for the atmospheric vocals.  If the instrumentation recalls a dingy club that you probably shouldn’t be at, than the vocals are a polar opposite- innocent, dreamy, and naive.  The combination of the two provide a unique texture giving the effect of a beast in the night and a beauty during the day.  Check it out below-
