The tastemakers' darling announced she'll be working on her debut record following her return to England.
FKA twigs is finally ready for the stage. Last night the R&B experimentalist emerged from her lair of mystery to mesmerize a small audience at a converted West Village strip club. It was a night of nervous starts, uncharted territory and warped, cavernous R&B songs with more dance moves than discernible lyrics. But when it was over, the newcomer had reached the end of her first North American tour with burgeoning confidence.
FKA twigs -- real name Tahliah Barnett -- is a country girl from southwest England whose creative vision continues to push her far from home. It was London at first; Now two tastemaking EPs into her brief career, the Young Turks-signed singer – and well-trained dancer – couldn't escape the pull of the American spotlight. Last night's nine-song performance at Manhattan's Westway capped twigs' four-date test run on the unfamiliar side of the Atlantic.
