Ever since she hit the scene, Rezz has been an artist with a sound all her own. It’s an enviable place to be as a musician, and she’s got a rabid fanbase to boot. Now, she’s lit that base on fire with word that she’s in the studio with sci-fi alt-pop sensation Grimes.
“Grimes is one of my favourite artists right now,” Rezz tweeted. “So glad to be doin some shit w/ her atm.”
Grimes shared the tweet, confirming that music is being made, even throwing out the hypnotic eyes emoticon that symbolizes Rezz’s signature glasses.
Rezz has done a lot to experiment with her sound in the last year. She worked with metal band Underoath on “Falling” from her 2019 EP Beyond the Senses. Grimes, for her part, has always been a sonic adventurer. The producer’s highly mechanized sound should be a perfect foundation for the singer’s ghostly soprano. We can already hear her childlike coo floating phantom-like over Rezz’s evil beats.
We haven’t heard anything from Rezz in 2020 just yet, though she did close out 2019 with the heavy Yultron collaboration “Hell on Earth” in December. Grimes already gave fans a taste of her 2020 with guitar-laden chaos on single “My Name is Dark.” No word on when this collaboration will see light of day, but with double public confirmation, it must be sure for release.
Check Grimes and Rezz’ tweets below, and stay tuned for more.
