“Water Me,” the last video from the London newcomer FKA twigs, was one of the more arresting and powerfully memorable music videos in recent memory, and her new video for the heaving, twitching soul song “Papi Pacify” (co-produced, like “Water Me,” by the electronic experimenter and Kanye collaborator Arca) is further evidence that this lady knows how to make a music video that grabs your brain. FKA twigs co-directed the video with Tom Beard, and it’s a loving, slow-mo, back-and-forth portrait of a moment that looks both romantic and violently terrifying. There’s also a lot of body-glitter involved. And while nothing explicit exactly happens, you might not want to watch this one at work. Check it out below.
FKA twigs’ EP2 is out 10/9 on Young Turks.
