“…War & Leisure has political undertones, because that’s what life feels like right now. This album is intentionally about the ethos right now, that we are right in the middle of all this. We’re trying to flourish in the middle of all this. We all wake up, and it’s time to be creative and amazing and positive and all the things that we’re supposed to be when you look on Instagram, but then we’re dealing with these same problems, this injustice, wars between politicians with egos.

Sparking a conversation on heritage, culture, music, art and acceptance, for now AVANTgarden is a monthly publication with Twigs hopefully expanding it to a print edition accompanied by a site.
