It’s not uncommon for artists to cover left-field songs when swinging by BBC’s Live Lounge. Previously, we’ve seen CHVRCHES take on Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” and Muse tackle Prince’s “Sign o’ the Times”. During her recent session, FKA Twigs tried her hand at Sia’s hit single “Elastic Heart”.
Though FKA and Sia seem to exist on opposite poles of the pop spectrum, one wouldn’t know it judging by this performance, which brings together the best of both singers’ worlds. In fact, when FKA brings out someone to do an interpretive dance routine right there in the Live Lounge studio, it’s as though she’s paying homage to her own performance art aesthetic as well as the actual “Elastic Heart” video.
