Watch: Grimes channels Dolly Parton and technicolour basketball in her ace new ‘California’ video

She’s completely reworked the ‘Art Angels’ song, too.

Grimes has a bonkers new video to match ‘California,’ complete with a complete instrumental reworking of her ‘Art Angels’ track.

Channelling the song’s all-American disco-hoedown vibes to maximum setting, Claire Boucher dons sequinned stars-and-stripes cowboy gear, ribbon-twirls her way around a technicolored basketball court, and swans artistically around a clay figure studio in a beret.

Speaking to DIY for our March cover feature earlier this year (which you can read here) Grimes delighted in the fact that ‘California’ - with all its gaudiness - is a little bit uncool. “That was a goal!” she told us. “I didn’t want [Grimes] to be seen as a thing that existed because it was cool. It’s the same thing as the cute thing - ‘oh, Grimes, because it’s cool’. No, no, it’s not cool, and it’s not cute.”
