Music: FKA Twigs: 'Weird things can be sexy'

Don't you hate it when artists with so much talent are painfully underrated? Fka Twigs is definitely one of those artists, who deserves more recognition than she gets. Weird, that she is now broadly known for dating a Hollywood star... Yep, that's the society we live in.
What I love about her is her sensuality, sexuality and her ability to show great vulnerability when it comes to love in her videos as well well as in her lyrics. Her songs are primarily gloomy, melancholic and creatively out of the norm with interesting rhythms - yep that "weird" kind of music, that makes others around you feel uncomfortable.

In an interview with Le Monde in 2014, she explained that she is "not restricted by any musical genre". She insisted that she likes to experiment with sounds, generating emotions while putting [her] voice on certain atmospheres [...]. "I found my own way of playing punk. I like industrial sounds and incorporating everyday life's sounds like a car alarm." And that is exactly what you get from her singles and albums like LP1, EP2 etc.
Her lyrics focus mainly on love: Getting your heart broken, being totally submissive to your partner or even being at your lover's mercy both emotionally and sexually. In a time like this in which it's all about woman's empowerment or being a strong woman, this topic is definitely controversial. Fka Twigs is unique and shows great pride in it and I think you should def check her out! Enjoy!
