Tune in and turn up

It has now been a year since Grimes delivered her highly-anticipated fourth album Art Angels to widespread acclaim, and in the ensuing time she has continually managed to find inspiration from the album’s diverse array of songs. In fact, she may only be getting started. The electronic wizard uploaded a whopping seven new music videos online last night, more than double the already existing amount of her album’s visual accompaniments.

Though to be fair, three of those seven are for songs from her touring partner HANNA, though she still lent her directorial and stylist touch. The videos taken from Art Angels are “Butterfly,” “World Princess Pt. II,” “SCREAM” and “Belly of the Beat.”

All seven of these visuals were shot and conceived by Grimes, HANNA and Grimes’s brother Mac (who did most of the camerawork) as they toured the world in support of the album this past year. Which means that locations as diverse as the streets of Rome and London to lush countryside villas to festival stages. And despite being shot on a cellphone with a far lower-budget than her previous videos, all of them are hypnotically eye-catching and true to the colorful, quirky aesthetic that Grimes has established over the course of her career.

Watch all seven of Grimes and HANNA’s new videos in one edited compilation titled “The Acid Reign Chronicles” right here.
