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. Bookended by flourishes of operatic melodrama and string quartets it channels much of the ethereal beauty of Crystal Castles’ II. Blooms and flourishes of strange, twisted melody burst ‘n’ fall like confetti and fireworks. Wowzer.”
