FKA Twigs’ Steamy New Dance Video Will Make You Curse Your Two Left Feet

No one should be able to move like this.

1. Before she was labelmates with The xx — pushing at the fringes of R&B and experimental electronic music — London’s FKA Twigs was a professional dancer.

Here she is in 2010 dancing backup in Jessie J’s video for “Do it Like a Dude.”

2. At her scant live shows, she’s been known to utilize her body on stage as much as her voice.

In April, we said her show was “as much a display of the extraordinary things she can do with her body as it is a proving ground for her singing chops.”

3. Twigs’ new video, for an instrumental remix to 2012 single “Ache,” is a mesmerizing showcase of her own choreography.

4. Moving through a thin haze in a gray, cavernous room, stuttering edits exaggerate her alternately fluid and mechanical contortions.

5. Did we say haze? Because things get pretty steamy.
