Cuban-born, Paris-based twin sisters Naomi and Lisa-Kaindé make up XL Recording’s newest signing, Ibeyi. While the sisters are only 19 years old, they’re exhibiting a palate of sounds far beyond their years. 

‘River’, the second of two singles to have been teased so far, is a prime example of this. With a heavy, percussive beat at its core, the duo sing in four different languages (English, French, Spanish and Yoruba) and fashion the track into what they call “Electronic Doom Soul”. Collaborating with Richard Russell and name-dropping influences like James Blake and Nina Simone, Ibeyi are a group to be on the look out for.
