Adam Bainbridge creates atmospheric, R&B-leaning electronica under his alter ego Kindness. This week, the UK native applies his moody synths to “Some Things Never Seem to Fucking Work”, a highlight off Solange Knowles’ 2012 True EP.

On his unique rendition, Bainbridge replaces the original’s silky sheen and upbeat attitude with a more doleful mix of droning sounds and stoic vocals. Although it strays far from Knowles’ vision, the cover’s dark tone seems to match the song’s prickly title rather perfectly. Listen in below.

Bainbridge’s latest Kindness album, Otherness, is out now via Female Energy/Mom+Pop.
