Grimes released her self-directed video for the song “Genesis” today and, like everything Grimes does, it is a strangely beautiful masterpiece. In it, she appears as several different fantasy versions of herself, from a gypsy-like desert dancer with a flaming sword to a pigtail-haired schoolgirl with a python around her neck. Somehow it works, and the video draws you in from its opening moments and holds your attention until the closing notes of the song like a weird, vivid dream you can’t seem to wake up from. Take a few moments and get lost in Grimes’ fantasy world!
