FKA twigs - Two Weeks

Okay, so I'm really really late to the FKA twigs party.  I've seen the name floating around for a long time now, but you know how someone asks you if you've heard an album or artist and you'll say "I'll check it out", but it somehow never happens?  Yeah, that's me and FKA twigs.

Anyways, I finally did a Youtube sweep of her work and discovered that she's an absolutely amazing visual artist.  "Water Me" is reminiscent of the alien portrait imagery found in Björk's "Hunter" video and it's impossible to look away.  Her music is exceedingly hard to categorize.  It mixes elements of electronic, R&B, and minimal hip-pop music.  You can basically just forget about labeling her.

Her new song and video debuted this week and the visual component is directed by Nabil.  It's called "Two Weeks" and will be included on twigs' upcoming debut, LP1.  Your idea of depth perception and size will be thrown off a bit as the view pans out.  Check it out below.  You can pre-order LP1, which will be released on August 12, here.  "Two Weeks" is available for download, here.
