FKA twigs' New Music Video Is A Love Letter To The Early 2000s

The electronic-R&B artist has released the next entry in her “caprivids” series.


FKA twigs is taking us back to the early 2000s with the newly released video for her track “oh my love.” The latest single from her mixtape CAPRISONGS, released in January, “oh my love” discusses a relationship in which twigs’ partner is not reciprocating her affection. Rather than wallow in pity, however, she leans on her female friendships to remind herself of her worth.

The video for the track is the latest entry in the artist’s “caprivids” series, in which twigs has released short visual clips for each of the mixtape’s tracks. The videos fall somewhere between proper music videos and visual vignettes, with each new release bringing its own unique energy to the table.

In “oh my love,” twigs visits a salon and relays her relationship woes to a sympathetic nail technician. Interspersed throughout are vintage style shots of the singer donning vivid eyeshadow looks and, of course, newly styled nails. The lyrics of the track flash across the screen in a peculiarly nostalgic fashion, bringing to mind aesthetics of anywhere from the 1980s to the oughts. 

The video’s outro features a recording of a friend of twigs’ as she shares some sage advice to listeners. “I wish you could see in you what I see in you, what everyone sees in you, because that’s the golden stuff right there, and these are your golden years,” she offers. “So have fun!”
