Kindness covers Solange's "Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work"

11 February 2015, 09:44 | Written by Laurence Day

Kindness has unveiled an atmospheric cover of Solange's "Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work" ahead of his mammoth tour.

Kindness, AKA Adam Bainbridge, is jetting off across Europe, Japan and North America to support his latest, acclaimed work, Otherness.

His cover removes the swung beat and Solange's attitude, instead imbuing the proceedings with melted synth bloops, tinny metronomes and a dusky coo. It's pretty far removed from the original.

Otherness is out now on Female Energy.
