yorùbá-pop duo ibeyi is back to lift your spirits with energetic new track “away away”

July 11, 2017

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.
