The Tron gridlines of "Nightmusic" are similarly captivating.

PopMatters’ Matt James raved about Grimes’ latest release Visions back in February saying “she may have the name of a hobo and the look of a streetpunk, but Grimes sounds like a dream.” Now Grimes has released her latest video for the haunting tune “Nightmusic”. James said of this song, “the Tron gridlines of ‘Nightmusic’ are similarly captivating.
