When Grimes released “REALiTi”, she made clear to note that the track was in no way meant to act as any sort of definition of what’s to come from the brilliant composer on her Visions follow-up. Despite the track’s designation as a one-off, there’s plenty to discern from the track, and where we can possibly find Grimes on her proper return.
As much as “REALiTi” is a rough sketch, it’s an honest portrait of where Grimes stands. “Welcome to reality,” Grimes sings on the chorus. Over the past couple years, Claire Boucher has come to understand that reality can be even more breathtaking than any vision.
