Grimes reveals the new self-directed video for California,filmed in both Los Angeles, and Paris, France. The video features cameos from singer Megan James of Purity Ring, musician HANA, model Eric Cheng, musician Born Gold, and rising star Mac Boucher.Last week, Grimes performed Flesh Without Blood on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon and was interviewed on the NPR program, All Things Considered.
The LA Times called Grimes’ Coachella set “thrillingly relentless” while Vice Noisey says she’s“poised to take over the whole world,” and Rolling Stone called her a “mad scientist behind the control panel.” This spring, Grimes graced the covers of Teen Vogue and AnOther Magazine, was featured in Vanity Fair’s Disrupters portfolio and Elle’s Women In Music issue, and currently stars in the campaign for Stella McCartney’s Pop fragrance.
Grimes will perform at Lollapalooza, FYF, Moogfest and Hangout Music Festival and will open for Florence & The Machine in arenas including two nights at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on June 14 and June 15. She has Canadian dates on the summer tour circuit, with shows at Bestival in Toronto and Osheaga in Montreal. See a complete tour schedule below, and find more information here.
