KINDNESS HOUSE



I've been listening to this song like pretty much all of the past weekend. It's very different to what's going on currently. It's a touching homage to 80s pop and 90s house music - hence the title, thanks to its stabbing piano chords - and a song filled with warmth. The synth is great and expansive and muddy and it sounds like a well of feeling overflowing. The beat is deliciously old-school.

The lyrics are something else. I won't transcribe them because that'd just be stupid. Listen to the song yourself - hear the words for yourself. The main thing is that it's inherently sad, with a hopelessly optimistic overtone that gives the song its major key kind of vibe.

Yes, this is 'House' by Kindness and it's absolutely wonderful.
