Grimes (real name Claire Boucher) has released a self-directed music video for her collaboration with rising techno talent i_o (real name Garrett Lockhart), "Violence."

With this cisually and choreographically stunning offering, Boucher has proven that her expertise are ever-expanding. The music video for "Violence" begins with Boucher reading Sun Tzu's The Art of War in front of white, Greek-esque columns. The scenery remains the same throughout the video while dancers perform weapon-inspired choreography periodically holding an assortment of weapons. "Violence" is the second single off of her forthcoming album, Miss_Anthropocene.

Boucher's career has been looked upon with nothing but praise and admiration. Her fourth studio album, Art Angel, pushed her further into the spotlight and made her a household name. Pulling influence from an assortment of genres such as synth-pop, dream-pop, and electronic to name a few, Boucher's distinct sound clearly angles her at an upward trajectory.
