A few weeks after announcing their forthcoming 12-track collaborative album, What Kinda Music, Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes have returned with a new funk-infused track called “Lift Off”.
The five-minute song is accompanied by some dark and moody 16mm visuals by Douglas Bernardt, which sees the duo performing live in a studio space alongside elegant dancers.
“Yussef comes from a more experimental background, and he has a lot of loose, crazy ideas,” said Misch. “I know how to write a catchy melody, but with interesting chords and I have a good understanding of popular song forms, so I think I streamlined those ideas and made them accessible.”
You can watch the video above and keep and eye out for What Kinda Music when it’s released on 24 April.
