Grimes – Art Angel (Documentary)

Grimes – Art Angel (Documentary)

FADER GRIMES At first I guess there was just Grimes I don’t technically have control Over her narrative anymore You know she very much exists in pop culture
now Grimes as one person cannot represent more than a couple ideas That’s why I started developing some of the other characters like really abstract from like who I am or how I am You can start being an actor and like start like adding in more voices and start realizing that you don’t just
have to like not everything has to fully reflect you The art angels are the face of it We’re more like superheroes more like villains They are the performers and I’m like the
producer writer So much of my music is just like against like the people who are trying to take it
away from me I guess the overall tone is sort of like Aggressive being word Either like aggressively angry or aggressively
stoked You have to push people and you have to become aggressive or you can’t get your way But you know i’d constantly be getting emails from like producers and stuff being like I’d love to like work on some tracks on
your album and it’s just like you know that’s like me like saying to you
guys like Hey can i film this interview for you or hey can I do your interview for you or
something You know it’s just people offering to do
your job all the time and it’s just like infuriating I mean even just to get to the point where
I could like produce my own record and have everyone fuck
off and not like give me shit for it you know Just let me do my fucking job like why else am i here like I don’t want to be just like the face of this thing that i built I want to be the person who built it Just realizing there’s no one who’s going
to take control over this besides me Like if I want this to run smoothly and I want this to happen then I just have to like you know tell people what I want and what I need which used to be very hard for me I didn’t want to put something out that wasn’t like a full transition into the contemporary version of Grimes I
basically toured the world since Visions I learned how to perform I learned how to
sing Just doing like a full pop show feels weird So I started like screaming a little bit Then I started screaming a lot Phan is a Taiwanese rapper I sent her some weird song that Kind of sounded like Pantero with beats I was like do you want to work with me on
this Hey I’m curious about how did you find my music One of my friends actually found it and sent it to me And I thought it was like I just hadn’t ever heard anything that sounded like it before When I was finishing my album I really wanted a rapper But I wanted like the most crazy thing I could find I feel like your rapping is very aggressive Usually I play just myself Cool and my controller And sometimes some samplers And I think you do it like that Yeah I think it’s like a similar Yeah like alone and like MPCs and looper and stuff like that When you play shows do people dance or is it more like Yeah I think they will dance But sometimes they just stand there and they stare at me It’s the same for me sometimes they dance and sometimes they just stand and stare Do you have a job besides music I’m also a teacher and I have children to write stories so that helps me a lot because I’m always inspired by the children Do you show them your music No that’s weird There’s a point that everything is so digital that you stop It feels less like tangible and like less
real Real instruments just kind of like presented a challenge to me You can start taking more risks like tonally and sonically Process is as important as the final product And I think like the fact that I’m not like a super-proficient guitar player or violin
player whatever is kind of important It’s the first time that I’ve had the
budget or the skill set to actually like reference any of the music
I actually grew up on Like in one of these songs it’s like the
guitar sound the guitar sound is like A Perfect Circle And so it conjures all of these ideas It’s like that whole lineage of music Like every sound and every color and every
visual has a giant connection to human history that just goes back like thousands of years You can’t just like erase that stuff and
pretend it doesn’t exist That visual and that sound just like means
all these things like whether you want it to or not It’s been really fun to just kind of have the world at my fingertips Grimes Art Angel

  27. Grimes=perfect circle ⭕️

  28. Wow, love the fact she has the Scottish St Andrews and Lion Rampant flags on her wall

  29. She said she got the world at her fingy tips lol I love her so much

  30. Well her and Elon are sure gonna have a weird baby.

  31. i didn't really like that album. She needs to make more songs like GENESIS. that track is insanely beautiful and so ahead of its time

  32. feels like radiohead

  33. 3:19 As a Grimes fan from Somerset, I absolutely love that Grimes has the flag of Somerset on her wall

  34. 2:38 is gold tho, like how do you scream like that ?

  35. She's pretty interesting. Kudos to her for being so original, committed and creative.

  36. I love grimes but I'm so disappointed she's with Elon Musk. I think she deserves better.

  37. She is pretty awesome.

  38. Everyone has to compare…it’s silly.

  39. The music industry needs more people like this.

  40. "I don't want to be just like the face of like this thing that I built, I want to be the person who built it" – Grimes

  41. I wouldn't be surprised if she only sleeps 5 hours a night. She's a bundle of energy.

  42. I’ve never watched this bc it said documentary so I thought it was gonna be too long, 4 years later and it’s only fucking 5 minutes, I feel robbed

  43. Well, gonna have to listen to this album again. She connected it to APC.

  44. i had no idea that she was this young

  45. God, that is one pretentious chick.

  46. damn she is tweaking like a mofo

  47. That black/gold coat–pure magic! Love it.

  48. What's art? Are angels real? Thanx for the answers.

  49. Like

  50. What is the name of the girl rapper ?

  51. Wow, she’s beautiful

  52. i love but i hate… its good but its bad,
    … i dont know… she's just a mess

  53. no000… i realise she's just a mess…

  54. She reminds me of David Bowie

  55. my hero

  56. She's going to get into acting and is going to be absolutely fantastic. BUt I hope she always focuses on music.

  57. She looks so much like Siena mirabella

  58. She must have pissed off the film crew somehow. The lighting guy did her no favors w the bags under her eyes.

  59. She is very likeable.

  60. A perfect circle fan !?? What a time to be alive .

  61. Like like like like 🤦🏻‍♀️

  62. She says "like" a lot. So annoying I can't even hear her for five minutes.

  63. Listening to her music in the past I never got the hype, but this is enlightening and I feel like I understand the music better now and enjoy it more.

  64. I'm a little old for her music but I love that she is working so hear to remain true to herself. Don't drink the Kool Aid!

  65. D..did she just name drop A perfect circle?

  66. Why is no one commenting about her ICP shirt, you computer nerds don't even know what hardcore is lol. Grimes is stealing every aesthetic and that's what makes her beautiful.

  67. I get what she is saying about other people wanting to work with her and her feeling that they want to do everything for her, its like they are trying to steal her creativity by trying to exploit her talents and its a good thing that she doesn't buy into their bullshit and does it all her self, so that in the end she finds overall satisfaction and achievement in knowing that all the credit and recognition goes to her

  68. I love herrrrrrrr! She’s such a creative spirit with an eccentric vibe

  69. Wearing an ICP T-Shirt Surprised Pikachu Face

  70. This would be nice as a 1 hour doc too! Great video!

  71. She enjoys having a temper… I don't have any talent, and I don't care. I wrote one book as a joke in three days and paid with reviews, I know. I get mad at people like Britney Spears and Marilyn Manson taking so much perverse interest in me. Putin also infuriated me. I'll drop a couple more names. They dropped mine.

  72. I love how she is both the artist and the art, the architect and the architecture. It just works. I wanna be her lol but I also wanna be her best friend. Yanno?

  73. insane clown posse ? bleck ; P

  74. Female futurist McLovin.

  75. Poor beautiful soul. You know she's being prepped now for blood sacrifice. I can tell..i can feel that she is going to be one of THOSE artist that "burn bright, but fast" or whatever cliche it is they're using now.
    "Art Angel"

  76. So weird that she is banging Elon Musk

  77. I don’t mind grimes but she is very, very insecure. The overuse of buzzwords, the holier-than-though attitude towards classical musicians and performers. I think it’s great that she wants to be the one to write and produce her music and not just perform it but the fact that she constantly needs to advertise it shows she’s in a place of deep insecurity musically. I hope she manages to evolve beyond this almost teenager like mental age. She’s in her 30s after all.

  78. She says like so much its annoying

  79. Netflix… please start a documentary on this woman. Like. Yesterday.

  80. grimes is a gem

  81. Why does she have an insane clown posse tshirt. Please tell me it's ironic

  82. Her music is kinda like American kpop that I don’t hate

  83. is the music at the beginning of the video one of her tracks? can someone identify it?

  84. Take a shot for every "like"
