The 50 Best Songs of 2012 (So Far)

13. Grimes "Oblivion"

Album: Visions
Producer: Grimes
Label: 4AD


Grimes' "Oblivion" combines all the elements that make Visions, her breakout album, so excellent. There's a touch of the gothic influence that lends an underlying darkness to almost everything the Canadian singer/producer creates, but there are also rubbery synths and airy, impish vocals to lighten things up. Beneath it all lurks a fantastically catchy pop song, which is ultimately what ends up making the track so addictive.
