Anyma, of Tale of Us renown and ringleader of the technocratic Afterlife events showcase, joins the art-pop superstar for “Welcome to the Opera.” On paper, the meeting of Grimes and Anyma has all the makings of a synergistic match made in heaven given both of their penchants for experimental technology, futuristic aesthetics and soundscapes, and more.
On “”Welcome to the Opera,” Anyma and Grimes turn that theoretical success story into reality. From the outset, the track maintains a creative kinship with the producer’s blockbuster offerings in the world of melodic techno thus far, including “Eternity,” “Consciousness” and “Explore Your Future.”
With Grimes’ distinctive falsettos adding an ethereal and otherworldly dimension, her hypnotic delivery additionally complements the track’s voluminous, atmospheric qualities. The lyrics, concise though cryptic, evoke a sense of mystery and allure, drawing us further into the rabbit hole of Anyma’s melodic techno universe.
Despite keeping fans on their toes, Anyma does so in such a way which they are now well-acquainted, especially given the the trajectory of his last 12 months. It’s clear his meteoric moment is only beginning.
