On ‘Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work’, Bainbridge treats Solange’s original with a darker tone, adding a creepy metronomic tick to murky beats. The vocals are droned throughout, Bainbridge up close to the mic singing a tale of heartbreak as if it was his own story.

As Kindness and his band take to the stage, they’re greeted by a lot of bleary eyes. It’s nothing Adam Bainbridge can’t take in his stride though.
