Incognito, “Send Your Love” (2015): One Track Mind

Share this:

Music is a great healer, they say, and music is being used to heal earthquake-stricken Nepal. Pre-eminent UK funk-jazz group Incognito jumped into action in response to a tragedy that struck less than a month ago, writing, recording and now issuing a song to help raise funds to help the landlocked Himalayan nation heal.

“Send Your Love” is the product of their action: a song that in typical Incognito fashion takes on problems — both personal and global — with a healthy dose of positivity with lyrics that could easily apply to either. The vocals exudes soul, the melody is catchy and uplifting in a Earth, Wind & Fire kind of way, and of course, the song rides on a smooth groove. Everything you’d expect from Incognito, even when it’s served up post haste as it is here.

All proceeds from “Send Your Love” are going to UNICEF to help the hundreds of thousands of Nepalese children who urgently need the humanitarian aid. Incognito leader Bluey says “Your support will go a long way towards helping to provide basic health care, nourishment, sanitation, shelter and funds towards the clearing and rebuilding in the aftermath of this devastating earthquake.”

The purveyors of feel-good music are giving us a chance to help the kids in Nepal feel a little better themselves. Everyone wins.
