"Figure 8": FKA Twigs' Love Letter To The Vogue Community

FKA twigs loves to vogue — this much we know. But the degree to which the ever-elastic performer holds the underground-turned-sorta-mainstream community responsible for her own development has never been made quite so evident before as with "Figure 8," an ode to the art of vogue — and a statement…


Push, Then Vogue: FKA Twigs Holds The Pose With "Glass & Patron"

Well, damn. After our favorite avant garde shapeshifter FKA twigs teased a song called "Glass & Patron" in her exceptional Google Glass promo (RIP Google Glass) months ago, the limb-bending otherworldly oddity has just gone and poured us a tall glass of the hard stuff with a stunning…


"Pendulum" Video: FKA Twigs Truly Outdoes Herself With A Bondage Bonanza

Get More: FKA Twigs, Pendulum, Music, More Music Videos "I dance feelings like they're spoken." That's one of the most representative lines off of the oft-voguing, otherworldly FKA twigs' LP1, and also a key line from her latest song, "Pendulum," which the singer has just translated into…


Tinashe, FKA Twigs, Sam Smith And Jessie Ware Cover 'V Magazine' 2015 Music Issue

V Magazine always gets it right. Remember Brit Brit's "The Bitch Is Back And Better Than Ever"? Or their 2012 Youth Quake issue, featuring goth-pop princesses Charli XCX, Sky Ferreira and Grimes? Or Madonna and Katy Perry's S-S-S-&-M-M-M-inspired shoot last summer? They've just done it again. In a…

2014 is nearly over. (Thank God.) Accordingly, it is now that special time of year when we take a look back at some of the best, most #blessed records released in the past eleven and a half-ish months and then proceed to hem and haw over the exact order of their perceived greatness. As always,…


#throughglass: FKA Twigs Just Made Google Glass Cool

FKA twigs has just done the impossible. Until now, wearing a pair of Google's very expensive glasses (Google Glass) pretty much meant you were a total douche, and probably going to be beaten up or kicked out of restaurants for wearing your freaky X-ray goggles in public. But everything's just…


FKA twigs Puts A Haunting Spin On Sam Smith's "Stay With Me" For BBC Live Lounge Radio 1

FKA twigs, master voguer and songstress behind one of the year's most intriguing debut records, just hit the BBC Live Lounge studio this weekend. The singer performed a mesmerizing live rendition of her killer lead single "Two Weeks", which was great (love watching the way she moves to the beat) —…


FKA Twigs Keeps Voguing (And She Should Never Stop)

Not only did FKA Twigs supply one of the year's most intriguing debut albums with LP1, but she's been dipping, dropping and posing her way directly into our hearts as well. When footage surfaced of the "Two Weeks" crooner getting down at her show in Webster Hall, the general Internet response was:…


FKA Twigs, 'LP1' (Album Review)

To me, the most important and innovative thing happening in music right now is something that can be lumped into a (very broad) genre called "future R&B": Moody, minimal music for the midnight hour comprising dozens of acts, including The Weeknd, Jhene Aiko, James Blake, BANKS and Tinashe. FKA…
