WATCH: Grimes Has A Normal Saturday Night In “Oblivion” Video

We're almost to the weekend, gang, and we're not sure what your plans are, but Claire Boucher might provide some inspiration for your upcoming Saturday night. Below, check out Grimes' video for "Oblivion," a cut from her latest LP Visions. The clip, which inserts Boucher into various real-world sporting events (motorbike rally, high-school football game...barechested slamdance rager), was co-directed by Grimes herself and Emily Kai Bock, with cinematography by Evan Prosofsky.

Visions is out in North America now (via 4AD/Arbutus), and be sure to catch Grimes at FILTER's S.O.TERIK SXSW showcase at Clive Bar on March 16. Additional tour dates and SXSW appearances can be found below.
