fka twigs goes new wave vogue in video for latest track
The singer and friends bring the ballroom to the forest in 'Glass & Patron.'
As part of the YouTube Music Awards, FKA Twigs has released a new song and video, Glass & Patron, which she's directed and choreographed herself. Starting off slow and somber, we see Twigs stroking a pregnant looking belly with fierce nails before birthing yards of colorful chiffon that envelop a group of club kids. Soon the track ratchets up and the dancers are all vogueing their way up and down a silver, sylvan catwalk. The track is the first piece of music from her new EP that will be released later in the year.
The YouTube Music Awards are a celebration of the platform as a place for artists to be creative with visual content and FKA twigs was one of ten artists selected by YouTube and Vice. FKA twigs recently played sold-out shows of Congregata. Here are the rest of her live dates.
