Boomkat Product Review:
Twigs returns to center stage with this first taste of new material, an aesthetically gleaming but emotionally bleak ode to heartbreak.
A return to form for FKA Twigs after the patchy "Caprisongs" mixtape, 'Killer' is an electrifying nu-pop belter that glues neon R&B synths and lite dembow womps to a vocal performance that's grimmer than it might sound at first blush. "I don't wanna die for love," she weeps, animated by her very public relationship trauma.
Musically it hovers around the sunbleached HD pop you might expect from any number of top tier stars, but as usual Twigs has a way of subverting her sounds and themes. Her words will likely hang around in yr head for far longer than you might expect.
