The 'concept film' sees the 'LP1' artist dancing and using the glasses
FKA Twigs has directed and starred in a promotional video for Google Glass.
Called #throughglass, the short film features reworkings of her songs ‘Video Girl’ and ‘Glass & Patron’. Click above to watch the video which sees the singer working through spectacular choreography alongside a team of dancers.
FKA Twigs released her debut album, ‘LP1’, this summer via Young Turks (also home of The xx and SBTRKT). The album includes the single ‘Two Weeks’ plus ‘Pendulum’, produced by Paul Epworth (Adele, Bloc Party). Dev Hynes and Clams Casino were also involved in production of the record. The LP is the favourite to win the forthcoming Mercury Prize.
She recently wrapped up her biggest ever headline tour of the UK and will soon head out on a lengthy tour of North America.
This summer it was reported that Google Glass had been banned by cinemas in the UK over concerns about piracy. Both Vue Cinemas and the Cinema Exhibitors’ Association trade group have outlawed the technology, which launched in Britain in June, over fears that the headset could be used to create pirate copies of films.
Google issued a statement defending their product, which can only record film for around 45 minutes before losing battery life. “We recommend any cinemas concerned about Glass to treat the device as they treat similar devices like mobile phones: simply ask wearers to turn it off before the film starts,” said the firm in a statement.
“Broadly speaking, we also think it’s best to have direct and first-hand experience with Glass before creating policies around it. The fact that Glass is worn above the eyes and the screen lights up whenever it’s activated makes it a fairly lousy device for recording things secretly.”
