It is entirely possible that Ibeyi are the best newcomers in pop music this year. At least if you ignore that they had an EP out in 2014, but the linked album is their full-length debut.
It is also entirely possible that I am the last person to find this out as there’s been a bit of a buzz around them, they’ve already done a Spotify session and they were at Eurosonic. I have a long-standing habit of missing out on Eurosonic tickets and this year was no exception. Since moving to Hoogezand, I am also deprived of the free Eurosonic gigs, some of which were practically in my back yard when I was living at my old address.
