By its very nature, clarification is an act of contraction, an infinite number of possibilities collapsed into one. When all other potential outcomes crumble into dust, there's always a chance that the one left standing might not be the one you were hoping for. On "Papi Pacify", one of the four tracks from FKA twigs' EP2 (out tomorrow, September 17, via Young Turks), she longs for clarification from a lover whose commitment may not be built on a foundation as solid as hers, unafraid of the fallout because damnit she just can't go on any longer without knowing.
With producer Arca's help, the track throbs like an open wound, its narcotic churn threatening to suffocate as FKA twigs does her best to stay above water. "Tell me you're one that I can call, even if you choke," she sings, and the sentiment-- like much of her music thus far-- straddles the often blurry line between desire and obsession.
在制作人Arca的协助下，这首歌犹如一道抽搐的外伤，它的迷幻效果仿佛药物一样令人不安恐惧而感到窒息，你可以想象FKA twigs拼尽全力让自己浮在水面上却依然被水吞噬。 "Tell me you're one that I can call, even if you choke," 在她唱的时候，情绪——就像他先前的音乐——跨过了欲望与痴情的模糊界限。
