Grimes announced on Instagram and Twitter last week that new music and a video from her upcoming album Art Angels — the very long-awaited follow-up to 2012’s Visions — would be coming this week. Last night, the Canadian multi-hyphenate performed new material at California’s Beach Goth Festival, the first stop of her current Rhinestone Cowgirls tour. Who knows if the songs will appear on Art Angels or not, but if nothing else, they’re a good sign of where Grimes’ head is at these days — during one of them, she sinks to the ground while screaming.
