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.
