British musician Adam Bainbridge, aka Kindness, mixes pop’s lightness and accessibility with some experimental fringes. The first single off of his upcoming sophomore album Otherness, “World Restart,” is a great example of such. Impeccably recorded saxophone, bass and drums set up the foundation for a funky downtempo groove, and the soulful duet between singers Kelela and Ade is supported by a soothing, communal chorus. With each listen, Bainbridge’s thoughtful production becomes more evident, like the interesting “breath” taken at 1:28. Otherness drops 14 October 2014 via Female Energy/Mom + Pop Records and features Robyn and more.
