french ambient soul duo ibeyi returns with stark and enchanting single ‘lost in my mind’

February 15, 2017

Ibeyi took the world by storm in 2015, combining the Afro-Cuban sounds inherited from their father and European downtempo to create a brand of soul that we’d never heard before. The French twins, Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Diaz lit a spark and filled a void that many have not been able to find elsewhere. In their new single “Lost In My Mind,” the duo sings of being in a sort of warped headspace, exploring and retreating from the crevasses in the psyche and what they find there. It speaks to emerging from within your thoughts, penetrating the fog and seeking clarity. Let their sounds wash over you, capture you like the frequency they’ve embodied and stream ‘Lost In My Mind’ by Ibeyi below.
