Professional dancer, FKA Twigs is still making movements, even when her hair gets in her way. FKA Twigs’ new video for “Pendulum” features the British singer-songwriter suspended in air by rope that closely resembles that of her own braided and twisted locks. In the shots that follow, Twigs gets tangled in a web of her hair in nude-colored lingerie, showcasing her ballet skills and flexibility over a CGI stage.
The five minute visuals were self-directed by the rising artist, who also co-wrote the single for her LP1 studio album. If you were a fan of Busta Rhymes and Janet Jackson’s 1999 “What’s It Gonna Be” video, FKA Twigs’ “Pendulum” in all of its chrome-liquid glory is just for you.
