Taken from LP1, and sampled in the Google Glass film that Twigs directed, here is the full blown video for Video Girl, directed by Kahlil Joseph which sees FKA Twigs performing for a Death Row inmate.
Cultural re-approrpation at its finest. Directed by Jesse Kanda, here is the brilliantly intelligent societal commentary video produced as a 3D render for Kanye, FKA Twigs producer Arca’s Thievery. The outstanding track is taken from the forthcoming Arca album ‘Xen’ available November 3rd via Mute. You can catch Arca in London on 27th November at the ICA.
This isn’t selling out. This is being smart and creative and proving that art can be commercial. Here’s FKA Twigs’ short film for Google Glass. It’s called #throughglass, yes there is a hashtag but that is totally valid in this scenario. The film features edited versions of the tracks “Video Girl” (LP1) and “Glass & Patron” and a lot of vogue-ing which is becoming Twigs’ signature.
Following last week’s announcement that David Lynch’s Twin Peaks is making a massive comeback in 2016, it’s only fair that new British duo aptly named Pin Tweaks should have its moment in the spotlight – but the genius isn’t solely in the name. The track Girl On The Wire has this unique yet familiar aesthetic – it is reminiscent of Dev Hynes’ from a vocal and somewhat from a production perspective – the haunting repetition drawing more emotion with every breath. Pin Tweaks has already amassed over 100,000 plays on SoundCloud for the track and this will undoubtedly continue to grow.
