Ibeyi Share The Haunting Black-And-White Visuals For 'Ghosts'

French-Cuban twin sisters Ibeyi share the music video for "Ghosts," off their upcoming XL Recordings debut LP.

Having just shared their new single with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, French-Cuban twin sisters Ibeyi now drop the appropriately phantasmagorical black-and-white visuals for "Ghosts." The video for their meditative ballad was directed by Ed Morris, who also shot the twins' video of the year choice "Mama Says" and "River." It features murky, superimposed shots of sisters Naomi & Lisa-Kaindé Díaz playing piano and beating on the cajón in a dark home. Watch Ibeyi's video for "Ghosts" below and look out for them their first North American tour. Ibeyi is due February 17 on XL Recordings and is up for pre-order now on iTunes/Amazon UK/XL US Store.
