Ibeyi’s visuals are often as affecting as their spine-tingling, meshed together harmonies. Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz quite rightly grabbed attention with ‘River’. Held underwater by anonymous arms, it’s a haunting piece of film.
Disembodied arms crop up again in the twin’s new video for ‘Stranger / Lover’; this time grabbing at their faces, tousling their hair, and hovering behind them like shadow puppet shaped wings. It a starkly effective accompaniment for a song that deals with navigating a complex relationship.
