A quick aside here: At my dayjob (Northbound Leather), there’s a TV behind the cash register that runs footage from our past fashion shows. One of my favorite bits to watch comes from Bento, which features a rope bondage suspension that creates, as I put it, a human chandelier. Super cool stuff. Anyway, I bring this up because FKA Twigs‘ new music video for “Pendulum” features tons of amazing rope work, including some seriously impressive suspension bondage. Admittedly, hair doesn’t make for very sturdy rope, but it’s an artistic choice more than anything else, and the song (off her critically acclaimed debut album LP1) and video are absolutely gorgeous and lush.
