On first listen, Kindness’ "That's Alright" can feel a bit pastiche, like the intro to a moody Michael Mann heist film that is then frankensteined together with straight up ’80s dance/funk. There's even an earnest (if campy) baritone declaring: the beat is bad. Weirdly, though, this all amounts to an insanely catchy song, with each piece so well fused and sequenced, that despite it's almost absurd tone, it feels much more than alright. The single, which will be out September 2nd, also features a B-side live set from Radio 1's Maida Vale studios, which reportedly was one of Zane Lowe’s "favourite sessions of the year."
