Grimes Teases Very Tech, Very Spacey 'Venus Fly' Clip Ft. Janelle Monáe

Future femme.
Hi-key genius Grimes has shared a little snippet of her upcoming clip, self-directed and produced obv, for 'Venus Fly'. It features mad legend Janelle Monáe, and all things Grimes-related.
 
Over a swirling stellar background, Grimes and Janelle swish flaming swords around while wearing embellished latex battle gear and glittered eyebrows. Other scenes involve tricked-out eyewear, bubbles, falling rose petals, romantic sleeves and some kind of tar pit. Basically, it could not be anymore Grimes if it tried.
 
"Sometimes it feels futile to be making art in this cruel and extreme political climate," she wrote on Instagram. "But some of the brightest moments of the last few months for me and for a lot of you, I suspect, have come from seeing @janellemonae's amazing and positive vision of the future, especially when we are being introduced to so many possible dystopian futures. Thanks to for giving so much time, energy and creativity to this project. As a director editor, creative director I also feel like is my strongest work, and I can't wait to share w y'all." 
 
The new clip streams exclusively on Tidal, February 2 at noon EST.
