Cellophane | FKA Twigs
I swear I have musical ESP. Just two days ago, I was thinking to myself, “what happened to FKA Twigs? She got with the Twilight dude and just said forget the music.” So apparently they broke up a couple years ago and now she’s with Shia LeBeouf, but this ain’t a gossip blog so you can get that news elsewhere. Now, to this new song, it’s her first release since about 2016 and as a fan of her album, LP1, this sound feels a little different. The song is very ballad-like, but there are certain points when the music and instrumentation is so low that it almost feels like spoken word. Although a couple of her songs from her first album had somewhat mainstream success, you can tell that she isn’t the type of artist that focuses on that kind of thing. The song definitely makes you feel like she’s making the kind of music that she wants to make. I would imagine with this release out of nowhere that she has a new project coming soon. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a quick little EP since she has been gone for so long.
