David Knight - 8th Nov 2018

Music video A-listers like A$AP Rocky, FKA twigs' can only expect the best, and their collaboration with Fukk Sleep gets the full works from Diane Kunst. It's a gorgeous, luscious, and at times breathtaking visual epic.

Rocky and twigs parade around a futuristic, neon-drenched dystopian city with the panache of Bonnie & Clyde - one that comes from the recesses of their own subconscious as they lie, at the start of the video, in the hands of white-coated scientists. Each scenario looks as if its plucked from a blockbuster sci-fi movie, with Blade Runner-levels of art direction.

Both artists look amazing, with brilliant styling by Matthew Josephs and Ed Marler. And if twigs' seems slightly underused for the first three quarters of the video, that all changes when her vocal contribution kicks in and she exhibits gymnast levels of control with a pole-dance routine as A$AP watches (and, of course, smokes).

Technically its a marvel - and particularly the photography by Daniel Fernández Abelló, and a bold and beautiful grade by Joseph Bicknell at CHEAT. Awesome.
