Berlin based musician Niklas Kramer aka Still Parade is bringing his dreamy psych-pop sound into a mystical wavey mid 80s vibe with his new EP “Kindness”. Following last year’s debut album “Concrete Vision” and playing shows and festivals all over Europe, “Kindness” is Kramer’s first release of new music in over a year. “Kindness” combines drum machines, bell sounds and warm synth pads with timeless pop songwriting. The EP was recorded over the span of five days and serves as a spiritual interlude between Concrete Vision and a new full-length album set to be released in 2018. Crafted around personal experience the songs are dealing with different topics like restlessness, uncertainty, and intimacy.
“After working on a new album for most of the year and just feeling stuck for awhile 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. I tried to keep the process as straightforward as possible and not to overthink any of my decisions. I always want to make music that is real to me and this song capture the feeling of this one weird week in August.”
