this feels so unlike anything else coming out at the minute. confronted how primed I was to taking in pop as staged performance

I'm not a huge fan of his comedy but I think what he's done on Twitter has been important. Shook things up a bit.

The new fka twigs album epitomises this trend.

Kate Bushy. Very stagey. A bit corny. But also very OF THE MINUTE production.

I quite like it.

Also when thinking about the "dark" "moody" pop and rnb, it's relevant to consider movies and TV that are popular ATM - Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, True Detective, (even Game of Thrones?).

High definition textures, "cold" filters, dark shadows, psychic unease, paranoia. James Bond becomes a therapy case. Some of those BBC dramas are like this too -The Bodyguard, The Night Manager. IdleRich's thread about Lynne Ramsay made me think of this.
Some threads in this thread that I dropped but are still intriguing to me, at least

Also, if there is an ironic aspect to the more upbeat pop music now, that's of a piece with the moodier stuff insofar as its no longer "innocent".
Amazing post, big man, and relevant to that dua lipa tune

Not dark but an "edge". A little bit gritty, like a Saturday evening BBC cop drama.
 
Yes I was just about to stay, sound objects. Sculptures in artificial space. That’s something I sense in a lot of new pop. A very polished rich mix that fills up the spectrum and gives a sense of tactile music with fat sexual curves and contrasted textures

a friend of mine introduced me to christine and the queens some time ago and i thought it was very well performed pop music. some of the dancers reminded me of michael jackson's thriller videoclip.
