Canadian electronic pop artist Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) has dropped the new video for the song "California," from her critically-acclaimed 2015 album Art Angels.

The clip was directed by Boucher and her brother Mac, and features the singer bouncing between scenes in a sculpture studio, a colourful gymnasium, and a country and western-inspired stage set. She also rocks a wide array of colourful costumes, taking on a variety of archetypes, including a Dolly Parton-esque sequined outfit and wig, a mermaid tail, a witch, and a beret-wearing artist.

The video also features a slightly different arrangement of the song than what appeared on the album, although it leaves the track's massive sing-along chorus.
