FKA Twigs – “Pendulum”

By James Rettig / July 29, 2014

FKA Twigs’ magnificent debut album LP1 is finally out in a few weeks — we’ve heard “Two Weeks” and the recently leaked “Video Girl” and now Zane Lowe has debuted “Pendulum” on BBC Radio 1. “You only want me in open spaces,” Tahliah Barnett sings in an impassioned whisper hovering over a weightless beat. “So lonely trying to be yours.” It’s an amorphous and fluttering track, pushed gently along by a staccato rhythm and her typically immaculate production. She says it’s one of her favorite songs off the new record and you can listen to it below.

LP1 is out 8/12 on Young Turks.
