David Knight - 12th Sept 2017

Ed Morris reunites with Ibeyi for the first track to be taken from the Cuban-French twins' forthcoming second album Ash. As with his previous work with Ibeyi, he creates starkly conceptual imagery that has a mysterious aura, and deadpan magic realism about it.

Here Morris explores the sheer will of life to continue through a simple conceit: each one of the twins brings forth the other, in a repetitive birthing sequence. It's a powerful image that Morris delivers with a dash of impish humour.
