Writing about FKA twigs’ debut album LP1, which placed at number eight on PopMatters‘s Top 80 Albums of 2014, Adrien Begrand argues, “This is a wildly inventive statement by a new British solo artist that deserves to stand alongside Kate Bush’s The Kick Inside and Tricky’s Maxinquaye.”
FKA twigs, who we at PopMatters also named one of the Best New Artists of 2014, is prepping a yet-to-be-named EP for release later this year, which will mark her first new music since LP1. The first track to be released from the EP, “Glass & Patron”, is accompanied by a music video whose stunning and visceral beauty is of the kind we’ve all come to expect from this daring musician and visual artist.
“Glass & Patron”:
LP1 is out now via Young Turks; FKA twigs’ forthcoming EP has yet to receive a release date.
