That music vid has me stunned visually, sonically, and thematically.

You know, in this town, an artist really needs a lot of space when they’re trying to create something special. A place to cultivate a world of their own, far away from the real world that’s around them. Luckily for me, I live right inside the middle of the “H” of the Hollywood sign, and this is how I spend most of my nights: perched high above the chaos that swirls within the city of angels below. Now don’t get me wrong, I love to dip my toe into the muck and the mires of the city every now and then. Especially on Tuesdays. But truthfully, when I’m in the middle of making a record, especially now when the world is in the middle of such a tumultuous period, I find I really need to take the space for myself far away from real life, to consider what my contribution to the world should be in these dark times. So each morning, I have the luxury of asking myself, 'What shall I cook up for the kids today? Something with a little spice? Something with a little bitterness but is ultimately sweet? Or shall I take the day off and turn down the fire, and just take a moment to send my love to them over the ether?' Because sometimes, just being pure of heart and having good intentions and letting them be known is the most worthy contribution an artist can make. So, even though these times can feel a little bit crazy, they’re not so very different from what other generations have experienced at one time or another before. Amidst all the uncertainty, and as we transition out of one era into another one, there’s no place I’d rather be than smack-dab in the middle of Holly-weird making this record for you. Because you, and the music, and this place, are my love, my life, my Lust For Life."

This is like the only forum with a decent FKA twigs thread so here I am :)

Papi Pacify and Ultraviolet are like the best things ever. I didn't think she could top Water Me and Breathe...but she did.

So happy more people are discovering her!

Yesterday, she gave an interview on RBMA radio, which I have recorded and uploaded here!

 

Her voice sounds so cute :flutter:

And the fact that she recorded 'Water Me' in just 20 minutes :hdu:

Papi Pacify has really grown on me. I actually love it now  :flutter: I'm gonna listen to Ultraviolet and How's That a few more times to try and get into them. 

 

Grimes is also a fan of her!

 

FKA twigs - Papi Pacify (by FKA twigs)

this song is so good

twas co produced with arca, who is obviously awesome (and worked on yeezus)

** additional thoughts:

the more i get to know twigs the more i like it.  like, this is so brutally intimate, her vocals are so upfront and so untouched production wise (except for the low voice thing)

it also feels like, explicitly ‘internet’ music.  i dont really know how this could be done live, but i really like that about it.  i hate thinking when im making something like ‘how am i gonna do this live??’ i mean im sure she’ll find a way and im sure it’ll be awesome but i like how compared to most music happening right now this seems really intentionally about the experience ofthis particular recording of it rather than selling tickets to some future live shows or whatever.  

+ the beat is also just.. mindblowing.  its like achingly simple and then the chorus is so insane.  it reminds me of the sound design on existenz (the cronenburg film)  it is really unique 

especially with this footage as context, it reminds me of what the sound design at the beginning of antichrist would be like if it wasn’t music lol

"Formerly Known As Twigs"

 

Twigs was her name until someone already called that bitched at her. So instead of changing it totally she was a cheeky lil bitch.

I feel like Water Me will just be one of those rare timeless songs for me that I will literally never get tired of hearing. :defeated:

OMG. You guys, I've been trying to find her first EP. She took it off bandcamp, and there's no way to legally acquire it. Does somebody here have it?  :noparty:
