Grimes drops new demo “Pretty Dark”
Grimes shares a new track from her “AR band” project character “Dark“. She says about the “Pretty Dark” demo: “NOT A SINGLE lol / just a demo. This is from an AR musical im working on (AKA NOT THE ALBUM/ NOT OFFICIAL GRIMES MUSIC//////).”
“made the song and video yesterday so obvs majorly rough, but while im finishing my album im just gonna start casually dropping stuff as I see fit. Been doing this exercise where I try to write and produce a whole song in like ~1-2 hrs…fuck technical proficiency and whatnot.
**** Also, so gna start making AR (or illustrated?) ‘sub-members’ within Grimes (The art angels, as it were lol).
(Kinda like the Loona sub-bands X the Gorillaz?…
…psychedelic post k pop-ish fake band for my non-Grimes musical ventures)
_They are the main characters from the book/ musical im working on.. (AKA im bored of being so precious abt music and also feeling boxed in by the Grimes branding and I have this whole other world that’s rly fun to write for..
So I’ll save big singles and things for Grimes and casually release music more often as the AR band. )
PS… This is not her final look… but this character is named Dark.”
