Sunday Suggestion – Grimes – Flesh Without Blood

Sunday Suggestion returns with a track from one of our favourite albums. Grimes released Art Angles in 2015 without much promotion and after a couple of weeks it was out there. In a year that featured many strong albums, Grimes shook things up with a piece of heavy Pop indulgence. The album came third in our very first Album of the Year two years ago and received widespread acclaim in general. The lead track from this album was ‘Flesh Without Blood’. This track has a genuine Rock Pop slant entwined with those prominent elements of intricate industrial electronica and this is lightly glossed over an echoed production which is only enhanced with her lightly distorted vocals that glaze over the instrumentation. The track is cleverly produced and shifts and alters it’s focus almost constantly throughout the track whilst being catchy and melodic, but also maintaining its prominent rhythm and hooks. A real energiser of a track.
