“Oblivion” from Grimes’ third studio album Visions is eerie yet captivating, a mismatched mishmash of image and sound that seem utterly strange in each other’s company. The heavy synth and her angelic baby-doll voice are equally surprising when paired together, but nonetheless enchanting.

In the music video, Grimes (Claire Boucher) hangs out in a locker room with body builders and at a dirt-bike rally, certainly not the visuals we expected from dark-leaning lyrics that include the lines “Cause when you’re really by yourself/it’s hard to find someone to hold your hand” and “I see you on a dark night.”
