Introducing Kindness

Kindness is the recorded work of Adam Bainbridge and bears the fingerprints of no specific scene, no particular country, no certain era. It's pop music but it's slippery and enigmatic, sounds slick yet underground.

Touted by NME in 2010 as the next big thing, his sound has recognisable reference points. From the leftfield disco of Walter Gibbons, the cosmopolitan rhythms of Grace Jones and Tom Tom Club, to the frictionless 80s R&B of Alexander O'Neal, all swirled around with the blurry Polaroid pop of Ariel Pink.

His forthcoming debut album, "World, You Need a Change of Mind" was co-produced, recorded and mixed with the Grammy Award winning Phillipe Zdar (Cassius / Cut Copy / Phoenix), at Zdar's studio in Paris and is set for release through Modular on March 23.
