Description

The first single, The Weeknd-featuring “tears in the club,” is a catchy anthem for healing through dance, with a hypnotizing video featuring cathartic revelry. Another standout, “honda,” also comes early in the record, with FKA twigs leaning into a rap cadence to match fellow British artist Pa Salieu. Later on the mixtape, MAGDALENE -esque “minds of men” is a return to floating falsetto form for twigs. Even with its moments of melancholy, as a whole, the project has a buoyancy that LP1 and MAGDALENE never reached.

Kellett / R. Taylor-Firth). Used by permission. But although friskiness is very much on her mind, it’s impossible to hear Caprisongs without reference to trauma. Just over a year ago, twigs – born Tahliah Debrett Barnett – went public with a lawsuit against her former partner, an infamous US actor, for sexual battery, assault and infliction of emotional distress.

The outro to Oh My Love declares the importance of knowing your worth, of a piece with Self Esteem’s recent LP Prioritise Pleasure. The dreamy music-box tune Lightbeamers starts like a series of notes to self: “Did you give yourself away, again?

She has spoken about her desire to be written about as her own entity, not attached to a partner: “My work was so beautiful. It was so much louder than my love life. It is so much louder.” Caprisongs is the sound of twigs in the driver’s seat as she traverses her own curiosities and instincts; there is no man looming over the music, no weighty public narrative dictating its terrain. It is intrepid and light, the image of a woman attuned to planetary alignments but casting her own fate. Making music to feel good may not sound like a revolutionary ethos for a pop album, but it subverts the very essence of FKA twigs’ previous output. When we last heard from her in 2019, with her sophomore release MAGDALENE , she was creating “pop,” but drenched the genre in the uncanny and grotesque, and drowned it in the pain she was going through at the time. Instead of staying in that darkness, comprised of health challenges and physical and emotional trauma , three years later, twigs has returned with CAPRISONGS : a project that centers joy. Published by BMG Rights Management (UK) Limited, Warner Chappell Publishing / Rico Publishing, Teo Lucas Halm Publishing Designee The album features a ton of songs played across all Australian community radio stations, triple j and by any club DJ worth their salt.
