An angel of our time

If you thought Taylor Swift's Bad Blood was the girl power squad of our time (post-Spice Girls), think again. Electro-pop darling Grimes has released the final chapter in the Arts Angel trilogy, and it's pretty epic. Claire Boucher (her real name)'s teaser is exactly what we needed leading up to her set at Laneway Festival this weekend, and boy is it a spectacle. Directed by Grimes and her brother, it sees the musician and her posse race across the ruined city of Neonopolis, with attempts to thwart the efforts of a masked villain. It takes blood, sweat and tears — literally — but in Grimes' dystopian future, it's what you need for an anti-pity party. Watch the music video below.


Grimes will be performing at Laneway Festival on 30 January, 9.05pm at the Bay Stage, Gardens by the Bay. For last week's #WomanCrushWednesday, click here.
