I enjoy music that is shrouded in mystery and for whatever reason the majority of it seems to come from Britain. Perhaps there’s a sense of privacy that still exists in the old homeland that doesn’t here. Or maybe it’s because we’re an ocean apart and things tend to trickle slower here from there. Or perhaps is just because the Brits make damn good music and don’t care very much for the American appeal to it. I don’t know what it is, but I know when I like something I hear.
Kindness is the latest Brit act to catch my ear. Maybe a one-man band ala Porcelain Raft, maybe not at all…this is a question even the Internet can’t seem to answer. All I know for sure is that it’s the project of Adam Bainbridge, and it’s some new disco funk. A few days ago he dropped a new video for his single “Gee Up”, a short but ridiculously good track that will leave you yearning for more. The video features an extremely awkward, yet hilariously funny, two-minute ending so be sure to stick around after the song ends for subtitles, shameless plugs, and witty one liners.
The debut album from Kindness is entitled World, You Need a Change of Mind and is due out on 3-19-12 courtesy of his own label Female Energy. Enjoy the weekend friends.
