In her music, she challenges so-called gender norms in thought-provoking lyrics based on the intrinsic ideas of "normalcy" and binary gender roles. Her artistry brings race, gender and class issues to the forefront.
Her sound is distinctive but is strangely familiar at the same time. We like that listening to her records make us feel a sexy rush of 90s R&B nostalgia still relevant in her futuristic, eletroc-amped sound.
A self-professed 'Youthquaker' who dons an Andy Warhol tattoo on her neck, this Oakland-born singer has been making boss moves for some time now. Between the modeling and singing, we're trying to keep up.
Her vocals are stunning and her writing strong, "I want my music to be ballsy; I can’t think of anything worse than being wishy-washy, insipid. I want everything I do to be powerful and full of energy."
The new "gangsta Nancy Sinatra", her sound is voluptuous, sweet, bitter and vampish. It would be a shame if you didn't at least listen to the greatness that is her talent and see why you might be her next biggest fan.
The Stockholm native soaks up influences – from hip-hop to dance-pop and swedish club to gospel – and the results feel organic, timeless and positively exuberant. It’s music of experience – well-traveled and alive.
Her music is erotic and it's bound to cause some ruckus among the sensitive but the ingenuity of her artistry makes us fans as her music is far from being objective. Twigs' lyrics made us stop, reminisce, blush and sweat a little.
