While Grimes and 2 Chainz’s matching pants may not have been the highlight of this years VMAs, Grimes singer Claire Boucher has stayed relevant in the music realm with her hit “Oblivion” still winning new fans. In support of their new record, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, Scottish quartet Franz Ferdinand stopped by French radio station Oui FM for a cover of the adorable singer’s glitchy tune.
New York-based folk act Wilsen has been quietly garnering attention from fans and the blogosphere over the past few months. The band just finished a tour with Daughter and recently released their second single “Dusk.” The b-side for this single is a ghostly take on Grimes‘ breakout single, “Oblivion.”
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard Grimes “Oblivion” off of the sure-to-be-on-everyone’s-best-of-2012-list Visions. Oddly enough, we have not seen any covers of the track until recently with Total Slacker’s take on it.
