Ever since video clips emerged of her performing this song live, I’ve been waiting patiently for the release.
On Beats 1 Radio, Zane Lowe played FKA twigs’ first single, Figure 8, from her new EP. He gets a great little interview with her where she explains what inspired the song and the state of mind she was at the moment she wrote it.
The distorted heavy baseline melody is captivates and creates some kind of dark sexy world. It’s not too far different from the style of music she’s been making, but it’s still very fresh. Any fan of FKA twigs will be overly excited for the new EP after hearing this.
