In the search for new music, we often look to our favorite musicians. It only makes sense that if we like Grimes, then there’s a good chance we’ll like what Grimes likes. Yesterday Grimes tweeted “I AM OBSESSED WITH WORLD ORDER,” so we figured we’d check it out. Turns out World Order is a pretty big deal—the song Grimes linked to is called “2012,” and it has over three million views on YouTube.
World Order is a Japanese band formed by retired martial arts expert Genki Sudo. The music isn’t exactly in the same vein as Grimes’ work, but after a couple listens it makes sense. There is an addicting, melodic nature to the electronic pop of “2012” that you could almost imagine as a Grimes song once you get over the language barrier. Maybe we’ll get a cover soon?
