TOTW:FKA Twigs_Pendulum

I have been re-listening to the first album by FKA twigs again for several weeks after seeing her at parklife and think that I gave the album a bit of a short shrift on its release.

This stripped back and sexually charged R&B comes across as a fresh and exiting alternative to most modern pop music and the whole album is full of tracks that manage to feel part of a unified sound and still work well as singles.

Pendulum has twisting and filtered percussive sounds which leave the voice as the single melodic content which makes the choruses filled with rich piano chords and guitar stand out as a refreshing counterpoint:

TOTW: FKA Twigs_Lights On

FKA Twigs Sound is a minimalist take on R&B with experimental electronic undertones. On her debut album LP1 She manages give her flirtatious lyrics poignancy over lots of deep bass and unique samples to create tracks that are occasionally provocative and always seductive.

Lights on is a perfect example of this dark but seducing style and only gets better with repeat listens.
