Grimes Dips Into Taiwanese Acid House With 'Screams'

If you weren't already counting down the days until Grimes releases her fourth studio album Art Angels this November, she just made it all that much harder to sit tight. The Canadian artist released the track "Scream" from her new album, featuring a Taiwanese rapper she found on Soundcloud (she would, right?) by the name of Aristophanes. The vocals on the track are entirely by Aristophanes, which, you guessed it- means most of us have absolutely no idea what she's saying.

I've never heard anyone speak Taiwanese, but Grimes forces us to give it a chance with the intense instrumentation backing Aristophanes. Everything about this song says "build up." It's got marching band like drums, a sharp biting guitar riff, with whistles and bells finding their place in between. It's so exciting and climactic that you don't really need to know what Aristophanes is rapping about, but you can only imagine how intense it is with all the sound effects and the screams throughout the track. Have a listen for yourself here.
