M3LL155X is a continuation of the holistic creative process that FKA twigs has undertaken on each of her previous EP releases (EP1 and EP2), with videos forming an integral part of the release. However, M3LL155X is more ambitious than ever before and, in terms of concept, scope and execution, is undoubtedly one of FKA twigs’ most complete works to date. “the EP is unimpeachable; a high-concept, intellectually curious project that’s evocative, accessible and transgressive..” Pitchfork Best New Music 8.6 “Role models aren’t universal, but if we need a feminist pop star, then twigs is it.” Pitchfork Best New Music 8.6 “The critically adored (born Tahliah Barnett) continues to expand the parameters of pop, indie and R&B on this gorgeously atmospheric five-song set.” Entertainment Weekly

Instead of obfuscating her soft voice with layers of effects or singing in that cartoonishly frail and breathy falsetto, twigs prowls confidently over M3LL155X. The opening track "Figure 8" rumbles, shudders, whirrs and clicks like most of LP1, but her voice is clearer than ever. Over modular synth patches and a fluid wheeze of artificial strings on "In Time", she tests her brawniest delivery yet: "Every day, every day, you be testing my sane, you've got a goddamned nerve." When there are vocal effects, they're sinister instead of sweet, as if she's haunted by her own thoughts. That's the rub behind a seemingly submissive song like "I'm Your Doll", an angsty love song written by her pre-woke teenage self that twigs repurposes for adulthood."I just want [for] you to love you," she implores, as a reminder, on the garage-meets-gagging dancefloor missive "Glass & Patron." M3LL155X — like Sasha Fierce or Zadie Smith — isn't interested in vulnerability.
