FKA Twigs debuts a dreamy new video for 'Two Weeks'
This August, FKA Twigs—a British singer who’s been steadily building up a cult following since she released her EP2 last fall—will release her first full-length album LP1. And with luxuriously dark beats, Twigs’ effortlessly commanding vocal presence (which deserves every Aaliyah comparison it gets), and a careful balance between sonic experimentation and pop accessibility, it should be the avant-R&B record of the year.
Twigs just dropped the video for LP1‘s psychedelic slow jam “Two Weeks.” Shot by Australian director Nabil Elderkin, it’s like a mashup of Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time,” Kanye’s “Power,” Alejandro Jodorowsky’s failed attempt at adapting Dune, and Daenerys Targaryen’s current storyline on Game of Thrones, with a little nod to Aaliyah’s role in Queen of the Damned thrown in for good measure.
