Kindness' Range is Hard To Believe in Working Towards New Project
Evan Dale // June 27, 2019
Somewhere between the stylings of JMSN’s effervescent vocal range and Steve Lacy’s late-70’s pop instrumental heroism creates the modern disco experimentalist, Kindness whose latest release, Hard To Believe comes as the tertiary single reintroducing their left-of-funk centeredness to a world that hasn’t heard from them since 2015 EP, Who Do You Love? And what good timing it is. Emerging amongst a powerhouse global lineup of funk and soul inspired creators diverting the attention of the musically mainstream to something altogether more timeless and classic, The London transcendentalist has had no trouble finding welcoming ears to a collection of tracks sans genre or epoch.
Cry Everything featuring Robyn, Lost Without featuring Seinabo Sey, and now Hard To Believe featuring Jazmine Sullivan and co-written by fellow London vocalist, Sampha have done their due-diligence in not only reintroducing the world to Kindness, but simultaneously instroducing Kindness to the indefinable myriad of musical nuances able to be tapped for creative expressionism.
Paired with the release, Kindness announced a new album, Something Like A War can be expected September 6.
