Video: Ibeyi - Stranger / Lover

The debut album by French-Cuban twins Ibeyi is one of my favourite records of the year and Stranger / Lover is one of its best tracks, so it's nice to see it get wider release as a single.

The video, by Léo Bigiaoui and Maxime Baudin, is simple but effective - playing out the psychodrama of the lyrics with brutal simplicity. It calls to mind Godley and Creme's outstanding video for U2's Numb, but with the "tee-hee" mateyness exchanged for a hefty emotional wallop.
