Few artists are more worthy of the acclaim and buzz they receive than FKA Twigs. The British musician has become an undeniable presence in both fashion and music thanks to her creative baby hair game and hauntingly intimate sound, respectively. Last year, her simply titled EP2 gave us lushly layered and sexy tracks that were compellingly smooth, and her new single “Two Weeks” promises an even more dynamic step in this direction. The new single’s video is just as gilded as her music and only intensifies the status of her upcoming full-length debut LP1, out on August 12 via Young Turks — one of this year’s most anticipated albums. Tonight, nary a week before its release, the Londoner brings her silk to Webster Hall. Given her fashion sense and dance career, expect visuals as stunning as her songs.
