FKA twigs Debuts Captivating Video for ‘LP1’ Track, “Two Weeks”
Sensible Reason has been on a bit of a “twigs-watch” lately as we wait in anticipation for FKA twigs’ debut full length album, LP1. Luckily for us, the artist “Formerly Known As” Twigs has been teasing our ears with what to anticipate from her upcoming release. The latest tidbit from her camp showcases one of the all new songs coming from LP1. “Two Weeks” is a sultry look at the surrealist pop goddess as she tries to win our hearts with her voice and yet another captivating music video.
In “Two Weeks,” FKA twigs tries to chase down and seduce the emotions of a lover still recovering from another girl. In a song that Marvin Gaye would be proud of, twigs tells us “Suck me up / I’m healing for the shit you’re dealing.” With her breathy stabs at the vocals, she seduces the listener into forgetting their past and focusing on the present that could be in front of them. It’s a little raunchy, a little dirty, and a lot of fun listening to her trying to woo her new love.
In the accompanying video, FKA twigs plays the role of a goddess in a temple with servant dancers devoted to her. We don’t need much allegory to figure out what she is the goddess of, and just as importantly, this video is another visually stunning addition to her collection. The video slowly pans out and reveals more of the temple devoted to her, while her dancers slink in unison to the beats. The director, Nabil Elderkin, or simply NABIL, has produced videos for such talented musicians as Kanye West, Bon Iver, Frank Ocean, The Weekend, Nicki Minaj, James Blake, and many more, and it is a great sign to see that FKA twigs has been added to this list. More so, it is the mark of a talented director for NABIL to bring such a track to the table and still be able to produce a music video that reflects FKA twigs’ unique, surrealist imagery so well.
