The fifth studio album from experimental indie pop artist, Grimes, is here and it’s a soundtrack fit for the end of the world. Miss Anthropocene, out via 4AD Records, is 15 tracks of hypnotic insanity that stretch and pull at your emotions but never let you leave. Throughout the album the soundscapes vary greatly, featuring drawn out angel-like vocals, to heavy nu-metal punk-like grooves. It is quite a departure from her last album, Art Angels, almost 5 years ago which house more upbeat and dancey qualities.
Loosely a concept album, the tracks are about personifying climate change in hopes that it would be easier to look at. By taking something abstract and turning it something more tangible, she hopes to make climate change more fun instead of something to be guilty about.
