The track is taken from the metalcore group’s new album amo
Grimes’s long-awaited new album should be out later this year, but fans have heard plenty of music from the Canadian artist while they wait. Not only has she put out the single “We Appreciate Power”, she’s also featured on a number of collaborations, be it Janelle Monáe’s “PYNK”, K-pop group Loona’s “Love4eva”, or Jimmy Urine (of Mindless Self Indulgence)’s “The Medicine Does Not Control Me”. Now, she adds another to her list – “nihilist blues”, a team-up with Bring Me the Horizon.
“nihilist blues” is taken from the metalcore group’s really-not-very-metal new album amo. The track has shades of trance and stadium pop, but it still has a propulsive, aggressive energy. It’s maybe an unexpected collaboration on paper, but fairly consistent given the recent pop-metal sound of Grimes’s Poppy collaboration “Play Destroy” or the industrial direction of her own “We Appreciate Power”.
