If you haven't heard about FKA Twigs before- the girl is an absolute revelation. She is by far one of the most uniquely creative musicians performing and writing right now. Her specifically crafted aesthetic is so distinctly her own, and so interesting and strangely beautiful that it seems like her entire life is some sort of never-ending performance art act. She's a mix of vulnerability and strength, passivity and aggressiveness, hot and cold, human and alien, calmness and terror.
As an artist she's accomplished a lot in her 26 years- in addition to a burgeoning music career she is also a fantastic dancer and has been one of the most sought after backup dancers for major performers for a long time and is now also featured in Google glasses latest release- a pretty cool video that FKA twigs stars in and directs. Its a great idea for Google to recruit her- she's pretty cutting edge, something that Google Glass in all their try hard technological glory is also trying pretty desperately to be. We'll see if this combo pays off- hopefully FKA Twigs takes some of the douchebag-ish stigma away from the Google Glass toting "Glassholes". Hope you guys liker her as much as I do! - C
