Album Review: Spell 31 by Ibeyi

Excellent, Based on 2 Critics

The Line of Best Fit - 80
Based on rating 8/10

Opening with the ringing of a bell and some softly hummed syncopation, on an album with a title taken from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, this is undoubtedly, and exclusively, Ibeyi . The distinctiveness of Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz, the twins who make up Ibeyi, never really went unnoticed. After releasing their debut album at the age of twenty in 2015, they quickly shot to international renown; appearing in Beyoncé's Lemonade, quickly signing to XL Recordings and working closely with it's label-head Richard Russell.

Opinion: Excellent

'Spell 31' is the dynamic third album from the Afro-Cuban, French duo Ibeyi. The ten-track project is a transcendent exploration of the sisters' relationship with their ancestors and their sound is as strongly infused with spirituality as their previous releases have been, for those who know and love their unique style, this album did not come to disappoint. The album comes seven years after their second album 'Ash' - a vulnerable and powerfully political release that was met with high critical acclaim.
