FKA Twigs Dazzles New York on First U.S. Tour
FKA twigs is finally ready for the stage. Last night the R&B experimentalist emerged from her lair of mystery to mesmerize a small audience at a converted West Village strip club. It was a night of nervous starts, uncharted territory and warped, cavernous R&B songs with more dance moves than discernible lyrics. But when it was over, the newcomer had reached the end of her first North American tour with burgeoning confidence.
Hot List: FKA Twigs
The U.K. singer’s beat-driven trip-hop evokes the chaos of the city — but she’ll always enjoy the silence.
FKA Twigs grew up in a small rural pocket of Gloucestershire, England, and like most budding artists stuck in sleepy towns, she found herself drawn more to fictional worlds than to her own. “I was very quiet and used to love black-and-white movies,” says the singer and dancer, born Tahliah Barnett. “But my favorite was The Red Shoes. When I was young I’d sit and watch that with my mum.”
12 Alt-R&B Artists You Definitely Need To Know About
FKA Twigs: If Tinkerbell were a real live person, living in contemporary times, this is the music she would listen to when she realized there was more to life than just being Peter Pan’s bitch. This is music for fairies that read Rookie and are experimenting with purple lipstick and holographic nail art. It’s expansive and electronic, with Twigs’ breathy vocals anchoring the minimal and jangly production. I can’t think of anything else to compare it to, but her EP is a revelation, and goes best with a joint and dim lighting.

FKA twigs - Pendulum
Emerging Picks of the Week
One of 2014's most critically-praised new acts, FKA Twigs returns with "Pendulum" from her debut album, LP1. The experimental pop song plays with sonic contrasts: at times the production relies on futuristic bass and drums, but the instruments suddenly drop, leaving intervals of extended silence.
Twigs' warped sound echoes the frustration depicted in the lyrics from a lover irritated by an unreciprocated desire: "So lonely trying to be yours / When you're looking for so much more." The songbird seizes the chance to display her impressive pipes by sustaining a piercingly high register throughout the entire track. By the final note, Twigs has constructed a distorted pop song whose initial unfamiliarity transforms into a pleasing appreciation.
Fans thought so: after falling from the chart last August, the song's music video release swings "Pendulum" to a No. 4 re-entry on the Billboard +Twitter Emerging Artists chart.
