Icons: FKA Twigs

Tahliah Debrett Barnett, aka FKA twigs, is a singer and dancer as thin as a twig.

I am not restricted by any musical genre. I like to experiment with sounds, generating emotions while putting my voice on certain atmospheres. […] Younger, I only listened to punk, Siouxsie and the Banshees […] and then I found my own way of playing punk. I like industrial sounds and incorporating everyday life’s sounds like a car alarm.
