Kindness - Something Like A War (CD)
Kindness returns with their third full length album titled Something Like A War set for release on 6 September, 2019. The album is a culmination of years spent collaborating and writing with some of the most distinguished contemporary artists. Produced entirely by Bainbridge, the record is a collection of works representing a period of reflection and transformation over the course of 4 years following their second record Otherness. Now based in London, the album was recorded in several locations, while Kindness was primarily based in New York during the making of the album. In addition to their own vocals, the album features a range of guests such as Jazmine Sullivan, Robyn, Seinabo Sey, Cosima, Alexandria, South African artist Samhing Soweto, Bahamadia and Sampha among others. Following a series of select shows in June, Kindness will embark on a world tour in late 2019 with a new live band.
Kindness, who uses they/them pronouns, has remained busy since Otherness, working across several projects: they co-produced five tracks on Solange’s album A Seat at the Table, and contributed production, writing, and vocals to Blood Orange’s Freetown Sound and Negro Swan albums in addition to production on Robyn's latest album Honey. A sought-after DJ, radio host, writer, collaborator, and lecturer on everything from musical craft and heritage to queerness and history, they’ve spent the last several years performing as a DJ at venues across the world, from Palais de Tokyo to the Guggenheim Museum, hosted their own radio show on Red Bull Radio in 2016 and 2017, lectured at the Boiler Room in New Delhi and moderated Robyn’s Red Bull Music Academy lecture at MOMA in New York. They were recently featured in Solange’s Calvin Klein advertisement, shot by Willy Vanderperre, alongside friends Dev Hynes, Kelela and Caroline Polachek.
