Your favorite twins are back in full effect with the release of their new single!
"Away Away" is the perfect reintroduction of the revelating group, who've- Since the release of their critically-acclaimed, self-titled, debut album-made a name for themselves under their genre-defying umbrella of a Yorùbá fusion of pop, hip-hop, and eltro-dance. This particular track is their first since their 2015 "Ibeyi", and it has ALL of the answers. As it melds Afro-rhythm with a comforting choral interlude, the listener has little choice but to bob their head and surrender. Like all of their music, this is a journey, and one that they are tangibly present for- as their spirits stand adjacent to the lyrics; one truly is experiencing Ibeyi.
Ibeyi's career is currently on fire, with no intention of being put out as the 22-year-old duo continue to work on their Sophomore album, and prepare for their upcoming North American tour: running from October 18th (in Miami) until November 19th (ending in L.A.)- with tickets going on sale July 14th.
Keep your eye out for what's in store, and check out Ibeyi's latest single "Away Away" below.
