Some crystal ballin’ thoughts on who might (and might not) play Splendour this year.
Our opinions are always the right one.
Two clashing international festivals have dropped some ‘in-your-face-Splendour’ lineups.
British singer, producer and dancer FKA twigs has taken to BBC Radio 1‘s Live Lounge to drop a super-sweet cover of Elastic Heart, the 2013 hit single from Australia’s very own paper-bag popstar, Sia. Twigs’ interpretation of Elastic Heart (below) sees the electronic experimentalist strip the song back to a minimal backbone of guitar, samples
Queen of Divas, and self-proclaimed headmaster of the school of pop Grace Jones has just announced she will be releasing her memoirs, hilariously titled I’ll Never Write My Memoirs. An excerpt was recently published in Time Out, and as you might expect, it’s full of amazing nuggets of wisdom on being an artist in a
FKA twigs has gone and done a Beyonce by dropping a brand new record without really telling anyone about it. The surprise 5-track EP, dubbed M3LL155X, arrived on the internet’s doorstep this morning, complete with an epic 16-minute short film bringing it to life. The electro-R&B alchemist gets all David Lynch in the clip, which
There’s a certain level of online attention you’d expect when you start dating a teen heartthrob like Robert Pattinson but the abuse FKA twigs has faced online is nothing short of disgusting. During an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine (via Digital Spy), twigs was reduced to tears when describing a particular incident whereby a
Each week the Music Feeds team hunt down their favourite new tunes, bundle them up in some, often highly legible words and bring them to you. It’s Music Feeds Faves. FKA twigs – Figure 8 Yussssss new TWIGS!!!!!! So FKA twigs’ third EP, Melissa, is expected to drop in the coming weeks, and yet another
A new study has found that festival headliners are getting older and older. Take, for example, AC/DC headlining Coachella 2015, or The Who closing out the final night of this year’s Glastonbury Festival. So, in the name of all things up-and-coming, we’re gazing into the music festival crystal ball, and pondering 12 rising acts who
#1 Dads, the side project of Big Scary frontman Tom Iansek, has this morning graced triple j‘s Like A Version with a sterling cover of FKA twigs’ 2014 single Two Weeks, as well as an original track. First up, Iansek and his pal Ainslie Wills performed So Soldier, a cut from #1 Dads’ latest studio
Fans of British singer and producer FKA twigs rejoice, today the singer has unveiled both a brand new song and video, titled Glass & Patron.

Bliss N Eso have released a “new banger” — well, they’ve rapped anti-drug messages over FKA twigs’ hit single Two Weeks and released it as a free download. Bliss N Eso’s take on Two Weeks (below) opens with a sample of Willy Wonka’s famous line, “We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers
FKA FKA twigs?
For a moment, forget everything you know about FKA twigs. Forget that her 2014 Mercury nominated debut, LP1, received rave reviews from every major music critic; that her whispery, sensual vocals has categorised her as part of an “alternative RnB” movement (far from it in fact); and more importantly, forget that she’s dating Robert Pattinson.
Temperatures have soared and lineups have dropped — summer festival season is well and truly here. After humble beginnings in the back lanes of Melbourne a decade ago, St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival has grown into an international event, as well as arguably becoming one of the most anticipated and acclaimed music festivals in Australia this
After selling out both Laneway Festival sideshows in just hours, the high-in-demand FKA twigs has announced two more headlining gigs in Melbourne and Sydney.

FKA twigs is on her way to perform in Australia for the first-time ever as part of Laneway Festival 2015. While in town the English artist will play two sideshows, an 18+ gig taking place at 170 Russell in Melbourne and an all-ages date at Sydney’s Metro Theatre. The 26-year old, British-born FKA twigs, real
British singer and producer FKA twigs, real name Tahliah Barnett, has said she’s she’s “shocked and disgusted” by racially abusive comments she’s been receiving online, which are largely coming from fans of ex-‘Twilight’ couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (aka “Robsten”).

Royal Blood, FKA twigs, and Bombay Bicycle Club are among the shortlist nominees for this year’s esteemed Barclaycard Mercury Prize. The shortlist is almost an even split of old guard vs new, with seven exciting debut albums nominated by buzzed about acts including East India Youth and Jungle. The remaining five LPs belong to already
When you take two of the UK’s most singular and talented young up-and-comers and put them together, you know you’re going to get something… weird. At least that’s the case if you pit the unique electronic stylings of FKA Twigs against the heartfelt, neo-soulful words and melodies of singer Sam Smith. The may-or-may-not-be Laneway-bound FKA
