Grimes is busy working on a new album but while we wait she has shared a demo of a new song titled "Pretty Dark" that she says she both wrote and made the video for just yesterday. She writes on the YouTube description, "while im finishing my album im just gonna start casually dropping stuff as I see fit. Been doing this exercise where I try to write and produce a whole song in like ~1-2 hrs... fuck technical proficiency and whatnot."

Grimes also says this is from an AR musical she's working on, saying "im bored of being so precious abt music and also feeling boxed in by the Grimes branding and I have this whole other world that's rly fun to write for" and "I’ll save big singles and things for Grimes and casually release music more often as the AR band." You can read her whole note below and watch the video for "Pretty Dark," which she stresses is "NOT A SINGLE lol" below.

NOT A SINGLE lol
just a demo. This is from an AR musical im working on
(AKA NOT THE ALBUM/ NOT OFFICIAL GRIMES MUSIC//////)

made the song and video yesterday so obvs majorly rough,

but while im finishing my album im just gonna start casually dropping stuff as I see fit. Been doing this exercise where I try to write and produce a whole song in like ~1-2 hrs...
fuck technical proficiency and whatnot.

**** Also,
so gna start making AR (or illustrated?) 'sub-members' within Grimes (The art angels, as it were lol).
(Kinda like the Loona sub-bands X the Gorillaz?...
..psychedelic post k pop-ish fake band for my non-Grimes musical ventures)

_They are the main characters from the book/ musical im working on.. (AKA im bored of being so precious abt music and also feeling boxed in by the Grimes branding and I have this whole other world that's rly fun to write for..

So I’ll save big singles and things for Grimes and casually release music more often as the AR band. )

PS… This is not her final look... but this character is named Dark.
