Crutzen that was proposed to denote the current geological age the Earth is in. The album is a loose concept album about an anthropomorphic goddess of climate change inspired by Roman mythology and villainy. Miss Anthropocene is Grimes’ final album on record label 4AD, to which she has been signed since 2012. Sonically, the album is a departure from Grimes’ 2015 album Art Angels: Miss Anthropocene is primarily darker in style containing inspiration from the sounds of nu metal and ethereal wave compared to Art Angels’ brighter and more upbeat sounds.
