FKa Twigs drops a new song and video titles Holy Terrain featuring Future. Available for download and streaming, the moody single “holy terrain,” however, is a clear turn from the sparseness of “Cellophane.”
Riding a twitchy trap-influenced beat, warped backing vocals, and hollowed-out ad-libs from Future, twigs offers a heat-sick and tormented look at an infatuation period, when balancing on the precipice of something with another person feels like life or death.
The visual also seems to have a slight resemblance to Azealia Banks’ 2015 video for “Yung Rapunzel.” Both artists appear in an apocalyptic type world with colorful contacts. HotNewHipHop reported how a fan called out the similarities with Banks herself taking it as a homage. “I live for twigs,” Banks said. “She gets me out there.”
The 31-year old will take over the stage at Atlanta’s Afropunk Festival on Saturday (Oct. 12) before going on her Magdalene Tour starting in November in Vancouver.
