If her new song “We Appreciate Power” is any indication, Grimes is clearly ready for the robot revolution.
The song, as the Canadian musician explained in a statement, “is written from the perspective of a pro-AI girl group propaganda machine who use song, dance, sex and fashion to spread goodwill towards Artificial Intelligence (it’s coming whether you want it or not).”
“What will it take to make you capitulate?” she chants over chugging, industrial guitars and guttural screams. “People like to say that we’re insane / But AI will reward us when it reigns.”
The track arrived in the form of a stunning lyric video directed by Grimes’ brother, Mac Boucher. The lyrics flicker across the screen in various languages as Grimes and her close collaborator HANA wield crossbows and rapiers, striking poses in skin-tight suits.
