Art Angels is an uncompromisingly colorful conception of pop music’s kaleidoscopic future, a clash between modern dance pop conventions and the independent sensibility of a singular artist.
You could trace lines into Boucher’s own narratives in the ragged edges of her first three LPs; you could find the details of her hurt and fold them into your own hurt. But Art Angels is pure Grimes - performative, maximalist, joyful, and broad. While Visions borrowed deeply from the ‘80s in its fat analog synths and layered whispers, Art Angels skips to the next decade, embracing turn of the millennium mall pop and jock jams. At Art Angels’ core is an attitude, not an aesthetic. You can read a degree of antagonism into Grimes’ lyrics, especially the wistful kickoff California, where she seems to seethe at the way the media machine has processed her over the past few years: I didn’t think you’d end up treating me so bad, she sings.
Art Angels’ opening trio of songs present a handy summation of Claire Boucher’s singular appeal. The operatic Laughing and Not Being Normal opens before making way for California. Next up: the strident Scream featuring Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes and plenty of actual howling
