Grimes’ “Go” Video Looks Like It Was Pretty Expensive
Grimes offered up a short preview of her "Go" video last week, and it looked to be a pretty massive affair. And now the full thing has premiered, and it delivers, with Grimes and her brother Roco-Prime (Mac Boucher) co-directing a sleek and cinematic visual. Not a whole lot actually happens, but there's swordplay in the desert, blacklight raving, and creepy mimes, all resulting in an expansive video that kinda feels like a throwback to those indulgent, big-budget music videos of the late '90s — but maybe that's just the fisheye lens deceiving us.
The Blood Diamonds-assisted song was initially written for Rihanna, but after she passed it over, Grimes decided to release it as her own single. No word yet on whether "Go" will be included on the Visions follow-up.
