Of Tuesday Tunes – Two Weeks by FKA twigs

My song of the week is Two Weeks by FKA twigs.

This song is dirty, the lyrics are explicitly about desiring sex, and how she’s so good that he’ll forget all about his lover, presumably his girlfriend.

What makes this song interesting is the unconventional melody, meaning that sometimes there isn’t really much of one. During the verses, there’s a part where she sings only one note in quick, sharp staccatos that lead into a breathy high note. There’s no doubt that she was aiming to sound orgasmic – and she succeeded.

The orchestration is made of heavy synthesizers and a strong kick in the percussion, matching the sexiness of the lyrics and vocal styling.

The music video is … odd. I’m not really sure of what to make of it, though my favorite part is when she starts pouring gold dust on one of her subjects for no apparent reason.

Favorite lyric: “Flying like a stream of thunder, only way to do each other (High), Pull out the insides and give me two weeks, you won’t recognize her.”
