Video: FKA twigs "Papi Pacify"
- Words: James Eaton
In a similar vein to her recent video for the excellent "Water Me" track, FKA twigs' brand-new clip for "Papi Pacify" entrances the viewer in strange and beautiful ways. The piece—directed by Tom Beard and the singer herself—is disorienting and almost disturbingly sexual, and comes off as a sort of black-and-white study of bodies moving in erratic, glitchy slow motion. Though the visuals don't directly evoke the powerful churn of "Papi Pacify," they do seem to correlate with the lyrics sung by FKA twigs' airy voice. In any case, this is an enticing precursor to the release of her EP2 record on September 17 via Young Turks.
