Flesh Without Blood

Album: Art Angels (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This kiss-off banger finds Grimes lashing out a former friend, apathy being her weapon of choice.

    I don't see the light I saw in you before
    And now I don't, and now I don't
    And now I don't care anymore


    Speaking on Sirius XM U with Jenny Eliscu, Grimes said the song is about a former best friend of hers and "being really disappointed in someone who you once truly admired."
  • Both UK newspaper The Sun and Time magazine named this as their Top Track of 2015. Time magazine said:

    "It usually takes half a dozen songwriters to concoct a pop song this spine-tingling, but Claire Boucher, who once described her solo project Grimes as the girl group to her inner Phil Spector, writes and produces her music all on her own."
  • Grimes wrote, directed, edited, colored and art directed the double video which features this song and the more mellow "Life in the Vivid Dream."
