Twigs – How’s That

The mysterious UK singer Twigs occupy some strange middle ground between minimalistic techno and arty rhythm & blues. Hearing her latest single “How’s That’s” rattling industrial music in isolation, you would never guess it’s anything even remotely close to R&B, but Twigs softly restrained vocals create an overwhelmingly beautiful contrast, carrying the track into an unnervingly soulful state.

Twigs released her four-track debut EP last year with praise, but with “How’s That” she has expanded on her sound into bold creative textures, not unlike an ingenious morph of Aphex Twin and Jessie Ware. Creative, yet approachable – the sort of thing I carry close to my heart.
