Kindness is easy to love, hard to Google. The fast-rising British artist, aka Adam Bainbridge, makes modern disco-funk with irresistible pop hooks, including his new single “That’s Alright.” The song introduces itself with a languid saxophone solo before kicking off into a genuine stomper, with Bainbridge stepping back to let female vocalists take the spotlight. Over the next four minutes, somber and jubilant elements are blended to make a song not quickly forgotten. The B-side to “That’s Alright” is a live rendition of the song, recorded at BBC Radio 1’s Maida Vale studios. It’s a drier, punchier take that pushes the bassline up front.
Kindness’s debut album World, You Need A Change Of Mind is out now.
