VIDEO// Grimes: Genesis ( Live Session)

The personnel over at are my go-to-guys when it comes to live session videos! This latest stunningly-shot clip is of Grimes performing her second single, 'Genesis', taken from her forthcoming album 'Visions'. Oriental keyboard melodies litter the soundscape as we watch her take her place in front of the microphone. Her voice manages to reverberate and echo around the room, sensually angelic tones offset by a shuddering of your spine. I find her singing strangely hypnotic, fluctuating through an emotional purgatory with almost inhuman charm. The high vocal warm-ups at the start meet layered clouds of sound at the end. The video does the beautiful number every justice so stream the five minutes above!
