Listen: Kindness covers Solange and expands tour

Kindness covers Solange and expands tour

‘Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work’ gets a dark remake.

Kindness has shared a cover of Solange’s ‘Some Things Never Seem To Fucking Work’. The cover - taken from Solange’s 2012 EP, ‘True’ - has been backed by new dates for Adam Bainbridge’s world tour.

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.
