Berlin based Niklas Kramer aka Still Parade has spent most of his 2017 working on the follow up to his 2016 album, Concrete Vision. As a bit of a stop gap to tide us over, Kramer has shared the dreamy three-track EP, Kindness.
The EP is the first new Still Parade music in over a year. It’s a psych pop wonderland of drum machines and sun-kissed synth pads, all recorded in just five days, straight to tape to avoid any overthinking.
Here’s what Kramer had to say about Kindness:
After working on a new album for most of the year and just feeling stuck for a while I felt the urge to focus on something else. I started revisiting unreleased and unfinished songs I had written over the last few years. I rearranged parts, changed some of the words and sequenced the instruments and then recorded them straight to tape… These song capture the feeling of this one weird week in August.
