Last year’s most provocative and elusive aritst, FKA Twigs, is starting her 2014 takeover by collaborating with 4AD’s brother-duo, inc. Connecting the three proves effortless with both having an understated command of whispery R&B. The track titled “FKA x inc” is at its simplest, a break-up song, but not the kind that envisions breaking bottles and slamming doors. No—FKA Twigs is undeniably passionate, but always with restraint as evidenced in the track’s accompanying music video. Past offerings have looked more like art installations than the love-triangle narrative presented in “FKA x inc.” Twigs turns Mexico’s (most likely Tulum's) iconic vibrancy to black-and-white suggesting a once lively relationship turned sour-the white peasant dress becomes a symbol of love left behind.  

The new song/video is accompanied by a well-manicured website that promotes the sale of the song and an interesting, unexplained link titled “Zine” that only leads to the songs cover art. Is Twigs dabbling in the world of print? One thing’s for sure, this mysterious nymph isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
