Multi-talented recording artist and producer, Grimes, released the official video for “Venus Fly,” from Art Angels. Directed and edited by Grimes herself, the video also features singer Janelle Monáe.
With its stunning visuals, “Venus Fly” proves that everything Grimes touches is a pure work of art. “We used the Phantom cameras to create a feeling of time suspended,” said Grimes regarding the inspiration behind the concept. The video walks between the intersection of power, art, and vulnerability through its visuals.
Art Angels earned 2017 JUNO Award nominations for Alternative Album of the Year, and Recording Package of the Year. The video for “Kill vs Maim” also received a 2017 JUNO nomination for Video of the Year, and made the Prism Prize’s Top 20.
I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
