More Than Alright

Adam Bainbridge, also known as Kindness, released his debut album in March of this year. Called World, You Need a Change Of Mind, it combines 90’s sounding funk guitars with eerie samples, plus covers of Swingin’ Party by The Replacements and a slightly more unusual re-working of Anita Dobson’s Eastenders anthem, Anyone Can Fall In Love.

The record was produced by Philippe Zdar of Cassius, who also worked on albums for Phoenix and Chromeo. He perfectly understood Bainbridge’s desire to create a vibe not dissimilar to Prince, displaying a love of music that transcends simply reproducing what is cool.

Kindness will enthral North West London with a version of chillwave impossible to stand still to.

Shamanic and shambolic in equal measure, there's genuine invention at play here.
