Video of the Moment #2869: Ibeyi

Hard to believe, but Ibeyi‘s sophomore album ‘Ash’ came out last winter, back when we had cold weather. You can read Carrie’s review of the sisters’ long player effort through here. This week, they have for us a gorgeous video for album track ‘Transmission/Michaelion’, which features Meshell Ndegeocello on bass, a sample from the audiobook Citizen: An American Lyric by Claudia Rankine and an excerpt from The Diary of Frida Kahlo read out by the twins’ own mother Maya Dagnino. The girls’ profiles are superimposed over a visual of what has become known as the most isolated tree on Earth and celestial scenes. Deliciously different. Watch the new video below. ‘Ash’ is available now on XL Recordings. For all of our past coverage on Ibeyi, including their appearances at SXSW 2015, can be accessed through here.
