Her music is stunning enough on its own, but FKA twigs is fast becoming one of the most thought-provoking talents out there for her multi-faceted approach to artistic expression.
She's dropped her solo debut LP, channeled Aaliyah's Queen of the Damned vibes and covered Sam Smith so far in 2014, and now she's taking experimental dance videos to task with "Through Glass," a visual re-imagining of her own "Video Girl."
Watch as FKA twigs turns on her Google Glass, stares herself down in the mirror and proceeds to blow our minds to the tune of "Video Girl." Her impressive dance moves perfectly interpret the remixed track as she and a couple of her friends krump and break their way through a routine that puts a whole new spin on "modern."
No move is off-limits, and the tension builds as FKA twigs continues to search through trends and looks on her futuristic specs while rhythmic gymnasts somersault and contort their bodies into crazy bends (just as she does) and dancers get all up in her face. She rips the glasses off to reveal some crazy anime-inspired eyeshadow, and the surreal production comes to a close with one of "Video Girl"'s heaviest lines: "You're gonna get yourself broke one day."
Make no mistake: FKA twigs is one to watch as her inventive pop reaches new listeners. Give "Through Glass" a glimpse above, and listen to the original version of "Video Girl" here.
