Vancouver's finest electro princess Grimes is back with yet another stunning video for her latest single 'Go'. Originally written for Rihanna, the track has been simmering for a little while and while we expected bigger things for it on the airwaves (maybe we haven't been clubbing enough lately) it has been given a hearty injection of life with the release of the new video. 
 
Grimes returns with official video for 'Go' ft. Blood Diamonds
Co-directed by Grimes and her brother, the video is definitely up there with the most bonkers we have seen in a while. Aside from the fish eye shots in the club, nothing is expected. Credit to Grimes for taking her most potent pop track to date and giving it such a strange visual accompaniment. Need some additional context? Grimes took to the World Wide Web to explain exactly what inspired the visuals...
 
"It's our take on Dante's inferno. The circles of hell reflect more contemporary issues though. We shot a bunch at the salton sea which is basically an apocalyptic wasteland filled with dead fish because of human carelessness, the bullet hole hallway a la korn freak on a leash etc etc.   If you look closely you can find clues.  Haha, but in the usual fashion it is also abstract enough to just be a trippy visual accompaniment to the song."
 
As you can probably tell from the opening dialogue, Dante's Inferno was a huge influence. Lifted from the text, it reads...
 
"midway upon the journey of our life - I found myself within a forest dark - with a straight forward pathway - and then lost..."
 
Be sure to watch the video above and tell us what you think. Having watched a handful of times now we are sold, this video is pure gold.
