FKA Twigs

26-year-old London songstress FKA Twigs first piqued our interest with her pair of EPs comprising other-worldly shape-shifting sounds. Songs like "Ache" from "EP" or "How's That" from "EP2" set her airy entrancing vocals to shuddering bass and unsettling percussion. Aaliyah and Björk are two names that pop up often in comparison, the former vocally, and the latter sonically and visually especially after watching Twig's striking videos.

This has raised expectations of her full length debut to a fevered pitch, almost like the second coming. Most may find the album "difficult" at first, but Twigs' strong personality shines through, as do her sensitive vocals that show strength in restraint. In fact, restraint is the only extravagance on this musical adventure.-Nse

Robert's new girl. I hear K.S. isn't too happy about this.

I do find Twigs intriguing and haunting with her voice. Its like she is this old soul.
