Kindness is fairly new on my radar although he’s been putting stuff out since 2011. A friend of mine wouldn’t stop posting about him so I had to take a gander and really fell in love with the tracks he’s recently released. I had the opportunity to catch Kindness at FYF and was pleasantly surprised by his refreshing take on jazz and R&B as well as his love for fellow music maker, Dev Hynes of Blood Orange.
He’s set to release his 2nd album, ‘Otherness’ next Tuesday but listen on NPR here for a first listen! Includes features from Kelela and Robyn.
Also watch his colorful video for favorite ‘This Is Not About Us’ below.
