[Been Sleeping On] FKA twigs – Pendulum

I don’t know what to say, there’s no excuse for just now getting on board the FKA twigs train. She made a hugely successful impact last year with her debut LP1 and continues to mesmerize creatively today. But here I am nearly 15 months later loving the hauntingly beautiful single “Pendulum” after Pandora Shuffle showed me the light.

A delicate mixture of intricate synth layers and soul-piercing vocals, her second official single demands your attention from the start and holds throughout the five minute saga of heartache and loneliness. You can’t help but feel something stirring inside you as the English chanteuse lays down verse after poignant verse working her way to a crescendo of stunning refrain over heartbeat-like percussion.

It’s enough to turn me into an instant fan, ready for any and everything she has in store for the future.
