This is one of the records I was most excited for in 2017.
ibeyi is the band name of two Cuban / American sisters whose mix of unique voices, deep electro beats and impeccable songwriting produced, in 2015, one of the most surprisingly stunning albums I’ve heard in a long time.
If it is true that the Sophomore album is always the hardest, then here Ibeyi show a lot of character. This record is at the same time intimate, political and personal – and still refreshing and daring and inspiring at each listen.
Super highly recommended. Listen with care, and repeat.
