FKA Twigs ft Future 'Holy Terrain' by FKA Twigs & Nick Walker
FKA Twigs is back with a hypnotic music video for Holy Terrain, directed by herself and frequent collaborator Nick Walker.
Opening in the middle of a barren desert, Twigs smokes a blunt under a dim red light, her facial features warping as she rocks side to side, riding the high as she stares down into the lens. Moments later, she is in front of a vast blue sky, performing in close-up. The focus is on her heterochromatic contact lenses, blue in one eye, red in the other, as she commands our attention and leaves us hanging on every word.
Dropping right into some striking choreography with five backup dancers, Twigs is as mesmerising as ever, constantly exceeding the expectations she has set in previous projects. The consistent low angle throughout the video allows the desert location to fill most of the frame, and the abundance of sky and barren land represents the world Twigs is building for herself- she is on another level, the sole focus in her avant-garde universe.
Natasha Braier's cinematography toes the line between fashion and surrealism, at times bright and beautiful, contrasted against the frenetic closeups under red light in the group scenes. A scattering of VFX courtesy of The Mill ties together the concept with a haunting rippled sky and stirring transitions.
