R&B has been making a real comeback, specifically in the indie world. While looking in to this release a little more, I found that “PBR&B” is a term that seems to be prescribed to the “hipster” variety of R&B. “PBR&B” is, as you’ve probably guessed, the portmanteau combining Pabst Blue Ribbon and R&B. How cheeky. FKA Twigs and inc. are two up-and-coming entities from the UK, with both of them rising to prominence within the last year. FKA released her first EP in the very last leg of 2012 and inc. released their debut album on¬†Young Turks in February¬†last year. FKA dabbles in trip-hop and inc. appear to be a strict R&B outfit, but the two join forces to bring the best of both worlds in to a solid single. The video that goes along with the single is worth the watch and the single comes with an “8 page, full-color zine.” I wonder if this is just a one-off collaboration or if the two will continue to work together? Check out the “FKA x inc.” music video below and see what you think of it. Cheers!
