Meet FKA twigs – East London’s Avant-pop Auteur

Over the last year, London-based artist FKA twigs has produced a series of excitingly original pieces of music, each of which featured an equally striking visual accompaniment. A mix of soaring vocals and trip-hop beats, she has become an industry darling.

Luckily for us she has been sharing a number of tunes all summer long from her upcoming debut album LP1 – the latest being ‘Pendulum’.

‘FKA twigs is unlike anything you’ve ever seen or heard before. Meet the British avant-pop auteur rewriting the sound of modern music’

‘Pendulum’ begins by focusing on Twig’s vocals as they drive the song. Then faraway rap beats starts to provide atmosphere.

“My hope for this record is that people will be able to identify my sound as a producer and understand how much of this I do myself. I’m being fearless and finding a strength in myself to be more confident, to make bolder moves. It’s a tough industry. People always belittle what you’re doing, your creativity. I’m not listening to the sly putdowns. 
I’m finding the strength and confidence within myself to ignore those voices, and do what I’m doing regardless.”

‘Pendulum’ is out now and you can pre-order LP1, which comes out August 12 on Young Turks.
