Grimes – “Genesis”

The newest track from Grimes (now a member of the 4AD family), “Genesis”, seems to pick up right where “Obilivion” left off.  The songs’ backbone is an angular synth that seems clunky as it moves forward, but continues moving forward none the less.  Surrounding the bass’ angular edges is an atmosphere made up of Grimes’ airy voice and eastern sounding keys that blissfully make their way up and down a scale.  The contrasting sounds make the track easy to get lost in as it seems to force the mind to do summer-salts out of sheer joy or just the desire to move around.
