In a lot of ways, for a lot of people, pop music is something frivolous, airy, and pedestrian. In the world of indie rock, there exists a weird riff between people who embrace it, and those who view it as “not real music”. This is an absolute shame, because those are the kinds of people who will sleep on people like Adam Bainbridge, otherwise known as Kindness. He’s still a relatively young artist, with two records under his belt (2012’s World, You Need a Change of Heart and 2014’s Otherness) but he’s also worked with a lot of undeniable stars (Robyn performs on Otherness, as does Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, aka Lightspeed Champion), and although your roster of guests doesn’t make your records good, it definitely means that you’ve got something good going on.
