FKA twigs "Elastic Heart" (Sia cover)
Published Sep 10, 2015Experimental electro-popster FKA twigs surprised everyone with a new EP titled M3LL155X last month, and she dropped by BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge to promote the recent release. She performed "In Time" from the new record, but also treated the studio to a rendition of Sia's "Elastic Heart."
Backed by a sparse live beat, the singer delivers a stripped-down rendition of the radio hit, mimicking Sia's unsual vocal patterns, though she never quite reaches levels of full-out belting. She does deliver a totally unexpected choreographed dance routine, though.
M3LL155X is out now via Young Turks, and you can listen to the full show here. Watch the video of FKA twigs' "Elastic Heart" cover in the player below.
