Her performances are infused with artistic visuals as well as haunting and provocative sounds, vocals, and choreography. FKA Twigs is blowing up on the international scene, and this is just the beginning for the British star.
Since coming on the scene in 2012, FKA Twigs, real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett, is making her mark on the music industry. She is a dancer, singer, producer, and lyricist with a strong artistic sense that manifests on and off stage. She’s also currently engaged to former Twilight star Robert Pattinson, which has no doubt shed even more light on her career. She recently released a collection of music videos for her EP M3LL155X, or just Melissa if you’re not into decoding.
The 16-minute video strings 5 songs together, all telling a story which explores the feminine body and mind in a mystical and eerie manifestation of events. In the video you will find songs like “I’m Your Doll” with FKA Twigs represented by a blow up doll, which is pretty unsettling. You can also see her pregnant for the song “In Time” for which she dances until giving birth to a mess of trippy melting colours and patterns. It’s something you need to watch to really understand, so don’t take my word for it, check out the video above!
