FKA Twigs Performs At BRIT Awards
FKA Twigs wooed the crowd at the official nominations ceremony for the 2015 BRITs.

FKA Twigs, one of our favorite shape-shifting, genre-bending oddities, is currently down under touring in Australia, where she’s decided to debut some brand new material.

The LP1 goddess — who recently performed a hypnotizing set for the 2015 BRIT Awards nomination ceremony — hasn’t showcased any new music since the never-released “Glass & Patron” from the Google Glass commercial (we still want that, Twigs!), but during her set at 170 Russell in Melbourne, the ethereal beauty performed a new song called “Figure 8” — and it’s booming.

Punctuated by huge, lurching beats, the eerie track creeps along in a pace somewhat similar to “Pendulum,” full of odd, distorted background vocals and ambient synths. It’s not the easiest to make out what Twigs is crooning in her usual angelic falsetto, but it already sounds like a promising taste of what’s to come.

Is FKA Twigs gearing up for LP2 already? Let us know what you think of the song/performance down below.
