Ibeyi, formed by the twins Lisa-Kaindé and Naomi Díaz, teamed up with the singer Jorja Smith to beautifully gift us a spellbinding story. Lavender and Red Roses is the newest single that aims to portray how it feels trying to help someone that doesn’t want to be helped. The video transports us to the desert, in which the three artists meet a mysterious man hidden behind a mask. Symbology, magic and consciousness is what we can expect from the upcoming album Spell 31 from Ibeyi, which will come out this May 6.
When the British singer Jorja Smith listened to the songs of the forthcoming album Spell 31 by Ibeyi, she couldn’t resist but jump on this project. And that’s how Lavender and Red Roses was created. “We knew we wanted to create something with Jorja that would be different from what we’ve done previously that would allow us to connect with the true meaning of the song. When we came across the three sisters of fate from the Greek mythology that personify fate, we knew immediately that it would be the right idea. Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos are sisters, one of them creates the thread of fate, the other analyses it and the third one cuts it,” mentions the duo.

Lavender and Red Roses represents the urge that we may feel to help a loved one that is going through a hard time, but as much as we want to assist them, the truth is that only they can save themselves. Otherwise, we will eventually find ourselves dragged by their darkness. That is why it is so important to protect our energy. After the album comes out Ibeyi is planning to reward their fans with some live concerts during May. So, talking about energies, isn’t this a good way to heal through the lyrics and their heavenly voices?
