Single Serving: Grimes – Go (feat. Blood Diamonds)

GRImes GO-001

Montreal-based songstress Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) recently wrote a song called “Go” for Rihanna. The pop star turned down the tune but Grimes wasn’t deterred. She decided to record the song herself – with the help of her friend Blood Diamonds.

Grimes described the track as a “summer jam” and, whoa, is that ever on point. The track features strong melodies, stuttering samples, and dirty bass. It’s certainly not what we’ve come to expect from Boucher in the past, but it’s a hell-of-a-good summer tune. Take a listen.
