FKA Twigs has released Practice, a 7-minute short film that delves into the production process for her music video Cellophane. After a three year drought, twigs brought the rain in April when she released the explosive track. A harrowing insight into longing and unrequited love, Cellophane commands attention with its charging piano and backing electronic elements.
