THE VIDEO: FKA TWIGS - WATER ME

TEXT NATASHA STAGG

WHAT WE'RE WATCHING NOW

August 1st, 2013. We love this understated song by FKA twigs (formerly known as twigs), produced by Arca, and it's lament of a title, "Water Me." The simplicity of the track itself, combined with the quiet urgency of such a sad command creates, on its own, a deep moment. The video, though, premiering today, perfectly encapsulates that tragic humor present in young-adult manga, internet-only success and the quick death of meme fashion statements even further. A disembodied head rocks from side to side, a toy on a desk, until it slows to a stop. The toy's stasis is painful, though, as it is now useless. It tries to stay #relevant: a large, crystal tear develops, and its features enlarge, but in vain. All its resources drained, it sings "water me," in an effort to stay a part of things, but the screen goes blank, and the video ends.

FKA Twigs' EP2 (Young Turks), which includes "Water Me"is out September 9th
