FKA twigs - Good to Love

There’s no guessing her next step, but she could go anywhere.

Love is in the air. For the last month, messages of devotion have been delivered in a purer form. Rihanna broke through the smoke and mystery with berserk ballad ’Love on the Brain’, Kanye loves, well, Kanye, and Bat For Lashes just announced her return to music with wedding bells in the air. FKA twigs doesn’t waste time in delivering a similar, no-frills message. It’s good to love. “Touch me softly, let our kisses last,” she sings on a track delivered alongside a simple, bedsheet-tangled video.There’s still a hint of the disorienting charm that defines ‘LP1’ and last year’s ‘M3LL155X’ EP, but this is twigs’ most direct effort since 2013’s couplet of ‘How’s That’ and ‘Water Me’, dizzying doses of potential that truly announced her ability to marry complex production with simple truths. Twigs continues to walk a tightrope between chart-ready triumph and bright dynamism. She’s just as effective reduced to bare bones as she is when submerged in effects. There’s no guessing her next step, but she could go anywhere.
