Single Review – Grimes – SCREAM ft. Aristophanes

With Vancouver Pop experimentalist Grimes about to release her fourth studio album Art Angles with only a couples of weeks notice in which time she has been busy releasing some tracks from the album of which her new single ‘SCREAM’ is one. The track features Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes and Taiwanese lyrics delivered with speed. Around this are repeating guitar samples and a range of tumbling percussion mixed with drum samples. The song is tinged with heavier and rough edged guitars, heavier beats and echoed screeches which cleverly follow a muting of the music for maximum effect. A song that is as dynamic and as varied as Grimes herself.
