It’s no secret that Kneebody has the right stuff to make a singer sound better. The band has collaborated with vocalists ranging from Theo Bleckmann to Busdriver, but this track – featuring Inara George, of The Bird and the Bee – stakes out different territory.

An expression of romantic devotion, it has a dreamlike harmonic drift but an insistent rhythmic premise. The song, which came together as George sang lyrics over a guitar part by Kaveh Rastegar, maintains a blissful air, but with a hook: the singer sounds as if she’s in the grip of something powerful. This is the first in a series of artist collaborations that Kneebody will be releasing in the near future, and the project is off to an intoxicating start.
