Tom Misch has already built a reputation for beautiful music. Geography, his debut full-length, was an exercise in sustained gorgeousness from the man called “one of London’s brightest young talents” by the NME.
What Kinda Music is a collaboration with another imaginative young UK artist: virtuosic percussionist and experimental electronic musician Yussef Dayes.
The song sounds so good. I like the experimental elements. Besides, the vocals give the beats extra volume. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the solid hooks and well-written lyrics.
The single is accompanied by a fantastic music video, directed by Douglas Bernardt and shot on 16mm film in Kyiv. The camera follows a young man’s descent into a tube station that, somehow, becomes a mad dash through a forest as plants take over the subway. Yet it’s not exactly a nightmare. Instead, it’s a juxtaposition of elements that don’t normally go together but fit uncannily well. It is, in other words, a perfect visual metaphor for the songwriting alchemy of the Tom Misch & Yussef Dayes project.
