Grimes
"Circumambient"
Live in Dublin, 6/3/2012

Grimes is very big on splitting her voice into multiple harmonic parts that simulate the feeling of fractured thoughts that overlap, collide into one another, and sometimes totally contradict themselves. I’ve heard this before in different ways in other songs, but part of what makes her music interesting and powerful is in the way she seems to delight in this, and the most euphoric moments in her songs embrace this indecisive delirium. “Circumambient” is especially remarkable, with verses that form clear thoughts about a relationship in which neither side can move forward without addressing issues and a chorus that starts a thought that cannot be completed.
