I can't stop listening to FKA Twigs at the moment. Online, her minimal R&B is getting brilliant review after brilliant review...

She counts Aaliyah, Bjork and James Blake as influences; The Weeknd with his 'weird mysterious aura' is her dream collaboration.

If LFF is the Glastonbury of film festivals, then Sundance London is becoming the Latitude or Bestival. It is more intimate, cosy and it feels uniquely special. It provides an important distillation of the best of the independent scene and deserves to remain an annual event in the coming years.
