Kindness brings Kelela on for new funk-pop single “World Restart”

Blood Orange collaborator Adam Bainbridge returns with another meticulously smooth track.

In 2012 Adam Bainbridge released his album as Kindness, World, You Need A Change of Mind. The funk-pop sound had the carefully considered acumen of a sonic archivist while still capturing a raw ebullience (it's little wonder that Bainbridge would go on to collaborate with Blood Orange's sophomore album Cupid Deluxe). The crackling Fade 2 Mind singer Kelela shares these qualities, and takes on lead vocals with Ade Omotayo on "World Restart."

An apocalyptic kick worthy of the title urges the surrounding brass and bass onto the verge of frenzy but well into the realm of delightful mess: even when Kelela brings something immediately heavenly to the track, she and everyone else keep it a pop song where anything could happen.

Kindness's new album Otherness is out October 14 via Female Energy/Mom + Pop.
