FKA Twigs: LP1
Originally a dancer and model, London’s FKA Twigs quickly garnered acclaim last year with a pair of EPs (and accompanying music videos) that featured ethereal and slightly bizarre R&B. On LP1, Tahliah Barnett’s anticipated full-length, her disjointed and haunting perception of love continues to offer a striking take on the genre.
Though its lead single, “Two Weeks,” displays Barnett’s most exposed and direct vocal performance, the album relies on atmosphere and expansive instrumentation just as much. Also the album’s executive producer, Barnett has fully come into her unique style—one that is majorly influenced by past collaborator Arca, a co-producer of Kanye West’s Yeezus.
