Our love affair with FKA Twigs, AKA Taliah Barnett, continues with “Glass & Patron,” an eerie track co-written and co-produced by Boots set to an equally eerie video directed by FKA Twigs herself. The video is reminiscent of Taliah’s Google Glass advertisement, demonstrating her prowess beyond the aural realm as both a dancer, choreographer, and general creative visionary. I will not lie and say that this track is fun to listen to the whole way through. It doesn’t necessarily make me feel good. Nor does the video. But it makes me feel, quite intensely, things that I cannot boast normally feeling. That is the mark of great art – that which forges new pathways through terrain untraveled to mine the potential that lies therein. This video is a testament to that.
“Glass & Patron” comes from FKA Twigs forthcoming EP and if this track is at all indicative of what is to come, then we await it with bated breath.
