As we begin descending into the indulgence of the festive period, we thought it only right to see the year end out with some sounds that have either helped make 2012 a promising 12 months or like in this instance, with an artist who we feel (and have felt) will make an impact on the forthcoming next 12.
Twigs quietly burst on the scene back in July with ‘Hide’, a charismatic and nocturnal single that made a big impression on us and our readers. Since then we’ve been treated to a second single ‘Ache’, along with an accompanying video. Last week however Twigs, of whom very little is known (we offered some insight in August), unearthed an EP containing the two aforementioned songs, with an additional two new ones. As we’d hoped the extended player reachers further into Twigs’ exploration into the darkened world of leftfield eclecticism.
Said it once, we’ll say it again – keep a very close eye on this lady.
