Singer, songwriter, producer, director and dancer FKA twigs’ full headlining performance from the 2016 Pitchfork Music Festival, titled “Radiant Me²,” is available online today via Pitchfork’s Youtube channel.
Twigs headlined the final night of Pitchfork Union Festival in Chicago’s Union Park this year. The multi-hyphenate performer did a set spanning her career to date, including “Water Me,” “Pendulum,” “Glass & Patron,” “Two Weeks,” and more.
Renowned for her visually arresting and innovative live performances, FKA Twigs provided fans with over an hour long set which includes performances of three new songs as well as tracks from FKA twigs’ debut album and three EP’s. Twigs spent a lot of time surrounded by an army of beautiful dancers, voguing like her life depended on it and singing her stunning falsetto into the mic.
Noisey spoke of the show with reverence, lauding Twigs for her truly artistic use of the stage, “transforming it into the aesthetic incarnation of their music, investing fully in the visceral power of performance and making the little hairs on your arm stand up on end with what you’re actually witnessing.”
The Chicago Sun Times described the performance as a “mix of performance art and electro-soul, accompanied by elaborate choreography that underlined her background as a classically trained dancer.”
“Captivating” is how Consequence of Sound described FKA twigs’ headlining set, calling the performance “the blast of high theatricality was needed at the end of the long weekend, and Twigs delivered it masterfully.”
