It feels like an eternity since we last heard new solo work from FKA twigs.
Her new breathtaking single proves that it’s been well worth the wait.
“Cellophane” reestablishes the British singer as one of the most captivating figures in contemporary music. Tensely poised between the delicately fragile and utterly emphatic, the track is as mesmerizing as its accompanying video, directed by frequent Björk collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang.
Opening with an intricately choreographed pole dance routine, the video cracks open to the mystical and futuristic as an alien flying creature precipitates FKA twig’s fall through a void, ending with her rebirth in clay. It’s FKA Twigs, remember?
