Digital Crates: FKA twigs

If there’s one thing the Internet shows you, it’s that there is a multitude of artists out in the world building solid careers, creating great music. And there is no greater feeling than coming across an artist who resonates with a part of you in ways indescribable. Without fail, when I come across such an artist, there’s usually a couple of people out there who have been down but didn’t put me on.

Randomly browsing, I came across a piece on Slate on the English singer-songwriter, producer, dancer and video director, FKA Twigs, who started out in the industry as a backup dancer for musicians like Ed Sheeran, Jessie J and Taio Cruz, amongst others. Her debut album LP1 was released in late 2014. Her videos are works-of-art and there’s something both calming yet intense about her music and she has been compared to Tricky, an artist I am a big fan of.

There has been an attempt to categorise her music, as the music industry does, but it doesn’t lend itself to those random boxes, which is what makes it even more compelling. This is music you have to listen to.

Check out her YouTube channel for all the videos she’s put out. They are erotic, engaging, at times mildly disturbing but wonderful reflections of her aesthetic and creativity. Videos that are as powerful as the music itself.
