We haven’t seen new music from English singer and songwriter FKA Twigs since late April 2019 but the artist has returned with an illuminating and cinematic visual for “holy terrain.”
There’s plenty of creative inspiration throughout the track. First, there’s Future’s dominating feature. There’s also creative direction from the artist’s pals Skrillex and Jack Antonoff (fun., Lana Del Rey). The singer teased the visual storm on Sunday.
It’s safe to say the video has satisfied fans.
OMFG skrillex & jack antonoff produced this??? A BOP IS COMING

The visual also seems to have a slight resemblance to Azealia Banks’ 2015 video for “Yung Rapunzel.” Both artists appear in an apocalyptic type world with colorful contacts. HotNewHipHop reported how a fan called out the similarities with Banks herself taking it as a homage. “I live for twigs,” Banks said. “She gets me out there.”
Twigs released her latest single “Cellophane” (April 24) the dance/electronic tonality exuded sensuality in seductive visual. Directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, the award-nominated artist captured lustful and steamy vocals as she elegantly moved about.
The 31-year old will take over the stage at Atlanta’s Afropunk Festival on Saturday (Oct. 12) before going on her Magdalene Tour starting in November in Vancouver.
