Watch FKA Twigs’ Transcendent, Sexy Cover of Sia’s “Elastic Heart”

Sia’s “Elastic Heart” cuts to the quick from its first notes, eschewing any buildup and going right to the gooey emotional core. It’s a song built for the questionable acoustics of your shared bathroom or a really maudlin bar late at night. If the raw emotion of Sia’s version is too much for you, try out this sinuous, slinky cover from FKA Twigs, in the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. She strips down the crashing wall of sound to something a little cooler, more detached, icier. It’s less of a battle cry but just as impactful. Watch it for the ethereal vocals and stick around for the dance interlude, above.
