Jesse Kanda is a director of a digital age. Coming from a background in 3D design and animation, he often incorporates new technology in his films to create unique hyperreal pictures.
Following online success with his short film Dutch Wife (later picked up by Channel 4), he quickly garnered attention mainly within the fashion and music industries. He has since worked on projects for forward-thinking clients like Comme des Garçons, Martin Margiela, Preen, BLK DNM, UNO NYC and Hippos In Tanks.

FKA Twigs (formerly just Twigs) will follow up her excellent debut with a second EP, EP2, to be released September 9th by Young Turks and up for preorder now. “Water Me” is a first taste of the project, co-produced by FKA Twigs and advisor-to-Kanye Arca. Its video, above, was directed by FADER director to watch Jesse Kanda. In it, FKA Twigs’ eyes enlarge to Manga proportions, like scientists predict everyone’s eyes might 60,000 years from now, and cries a gel tear. (It reminds me of Sinead O’Connor and the slug parasites that infested people’s brains in the Animorphs book series.)

Twigs, ahora FKA Twigs, presentaba esta semana a través de sus redes sociales sus últimas novedades, prácticamente a la vez que Young Turks, sello responsable de THE XX insinuaba una nueva propuesta musical. En realidad, las dos cuentas estaban aludiendo a la misma aventura, un trabajo que cuenta con el tema Water me como single de anticipo y que vuelve a contar con las producciones de Arca, tal y como ya hizo nuestra protagonista con How’s that, tema que por otro lado figurará también en su EP2, y que rescatamos al final de la noticia.

El clip viene firmado por Jesse Kanda y da vida visual a uno de los 4 tracks de este EP, con el que la británica da una nueva vuelta rosca a sus intenciones visuales, en un trabajo enigmático y adictivo, que invita a la escucha (y al visionado) en bucle, partiendo de un minimalismo desbordante y de la enorme inventiva visual de Kanda.

Visuell drivkraft
Det er mer ved FKA Twigs enn musikken. Hver låt kommer med en video, som nå i enda større grad enn fjorårets EP passer perfekt til lydsporet. Som en pakke, levert av regissør Jesse Kanda sammen med FKA Twigs og Arca, forsterker det visuelle uttrykket det musikalske.

Det er noe helt spesielt som skjer når stemningen i en låt fanges opp så perfekt av musikkvideoen. På “Water Me” er alle bevegelsene hun gjør knyttet til låta, og videoen til “How’s That” føles mer som en visualisering av elementene i produksjonen enn en video som har som formål å promotere en låt.
