Grimes perform in a dark place

It’s nothing new for the music of Grimes to go along with a feeling of darkness and decay (and I mean that in the best possible way), however this ‘take-away’-style show series, produced collaboratively by TVMcGill and Leacock’s, brings a whole new layer to the mood, with a leaky cavernous/under-the-bridge setting bringing the literal darkness. This video of Grimes has her excellently performing with just a ukulele, something I wouldn’t have suspected be able to make her music sound as beautiful this. I’m still trying to identify what song she’s playing, but it’s great. Well done to all the folks responsible for this, hopefully more of these to come. Enjoy the video by clicking the picture above.
