Two days ago Grimes dropped a super-sexy bomb on us with this fresh track ‘ReaLiTi.’
However before one gets too excited, the track was actually recorded in 2013, with Boucher referring to it on her YouTube channel as a demo from her lost album, and that it was ‘never finished‘.
Well it certainly sounds finished to us! A lost album? Now it feels like someone’s given us a taste of something we can’t have. The track is excellent, to say the least. For a recording she describes as having never been mixed or mastered, it’s fairly well balanced. The scratchy electronic sounds in the verse kiss our ears over the soft bass line. The drums lead us easily into the chorus, which has the pulsating, panning synths. It’s quite hard to fault.
Fingers crossed the new album, whenever it may come, impresses just as much.
