hadn’t seen those videos before, goggs... very cool!! thx for sharing~

I hope she eventually releases more music, but if not, she’s left behind a seriously impressive body of work, from the records and videos to dance performances

i get the vibe she doesn't think of herself as a musician but an artist and she's probably just moving on to the next project maybe??

totally

the video is directed by andrew thomas huang, who worked fairly extensively with bjork on the art and videos for vulnicura, so there’s also that

i never think FKA reminds me of anyone tbh. i tend to think of her in a category of her own making

the ice skate (1:18) and breaking glass (2:45) samples are so good. also love that rumbly bass around 3:00 and the vocal of the guy keeping time way in the back of the mix

i don't know really how to articulate this but i love the like...world building? in her videos. like i feel like i'm watching snippets deep into some high fantasy/sci fi story that i've dropped into with no context or frame of reference, but if i just watched a little more in either direction i'd understand just what was going on. the Two Weeks video gave me the same vibe. it's very cool

yeah i think she (& her collaborators) manipulate context and environment really well. so much that digital effects that could go VERY wrong actually work.
