| SCREAM||Flesh without Blood|| Belly of the Beat|
Flesh without Blood is a song by Canadian singer and songwriter Grimes, released on October 26, 2015 as the lead single from her fourth solo studio album, Art Angels and fourth track on the album. The same day, Grimes released the Flesh without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream double feature music video to YouTube which featured Flesh without Blood along with Life in the Vivid Dream, another song on Art Angels.
Billboard ranked Flesh without Blood at number 15 on its year-end list of the best songs of 2015, and commented: "There were several otherworldly pop bangers on Grimes' Art Angels, but we're glad she decided to let this stratospheric kiss-off kick off the album cycle. The artist named Claire Boucher kept us guessing in the album's long gestation period, sharing Go, an EDM banger she'd written for Rihanna, and then admitting she'd scrapped an entire album's worth of material. In the end, she delivered the pop some of her fans were craving, without sacrificing the weirdness that made her a cult star. Flesh without Blood is that in a nutshell — a sky-scraping hook pulled out of unintelligible vocals, served over an underbelly of humming guitar".
Rolling Stone ranked "Flesh without Blood at number 15 on their year-end list of the 50 best songs of 2015. The prestigious Village Voice ranked the song at number 12 on their annual year-end critic's poll. Time named Flesh without Blood the best song of 2015. Pitchfork Media named Flesh without Blood the seventh best song and eighteenth best music video of 2015. The song also came in at number 71 on the annual Triple J Hottest 100 for 2015.
