Taking her alias from the way her joints crack, experimental electronic artist Tahliah Barnett got her start as a loose limbed dancer in music videos from the likes of Kylie, Jessie J and Ed Sheeran.

Now, as FKA twigs, she's in total control of the presentation of her own music, self-directing her videos and choreography.

In New Zealand to play St Jerome's Laneway festival 2015, FKA twigs talked to Sam Wicks about maintaining total control of her music. First up, twigs relayed the events of her morning ahead of her headlining set.
