When you are with Grimes, especially with this track, you are in the world of the etheric, the phantasy, of beauty, of fairytales, of the other spheres and also - of gaming. The sound is dramatic, girly and yet so strong.
It feels like we get abducted into the world of asian culture and the world of cosplay. Grimes is floating through this song like a future geisha at cherry blossom in the desert, experienced on holodeck.
I love the different layers of the synth bass, the ghostly flute, then the call of the sirens sets in, then the beat that remembers of the good old days of two-step - you feel as if you would be somewhere in cloud-land. The seducing siren, that is also the innocent child has this romantic, dark chocolaty color to it, which is actually quite dangerous; the Lolita-effect... and then comes the harp and the piano and you feel it's getting dangerous. Let's put it this way, I wouldn't want to fuck with sweet and cheeky Sailor Moon. Powerful Grimes, innocent and yet so strong - who wouldn't love you?! You are a real fighter out of a Kung-Fu movie like in "Hero" and this girl could kill you any minute!
I admit I love everything that has to do with asian comic culture, and it's all in here!
Play this song in the background while driving on a sunny Sunday afternoon through the city with friends and you will feel stoned and drifting at the end - your friends will gonna love you!

About the curator - Vicky Cohn
Being a real music nerd (or aficionado?), cosmopolitan and creative, Vicky Cohn is experiencing the big city life in her gonzo journalism attitude, while diving deep into different musical scenes, discovering new trends and herself. You cannot put her in a box, life is for her an art form and she isn’t sure where reality begins and phantasy ends as they influence each other. Her life could be a startup, where she is the entrepreneur, it could be a movie and she, the film director; sure thing is, she has many lives like a cat. You will feel it in her playlists as it is inspired by her different origins and her crazy adventures as a daring, cheeky, single Amazone and curious creative living in cities like Frankfurt, Berlin, London or Tel Aviv, trying to find answers to sex and love in our days…
