KINDER releases "Heartless"
London-based KINDER holds a mirror up to modern society on new single ‘Heartless’, marking the second release through his own newly formed label, Lapsang House. The moniker of singer-songwriter Leo Wyatt, no time has been wasted since the success of title track ‘Feeling Gets Too Heavy’, and with an EP slated for release on 28th July, the new cut is a welcome reminder of KINDER’s prolific output. The young producer garnered strong support towards the end of 2016 from Amazing Radio, BBC Introducing and in the form of over 65,000 Spotify streams in a single day for the first single, making his way into the Global Viral 50. With brand new material to whet a collective appetite, it won’t be long before this multi-instrumentalist is making even more sizeable waves.
‘Heartless’ was the first song to be written for the new EP and shaped the direction KINDER’s second release would be taking, both musically and lyrically. The track’s message is something that’s been felt by many in recent years as we helplessly watch scenes of poverty and suffering through a small screen that only distances us further from reality. Leo explains how he ‘was very affected by the stories of refugees dying whilst trying to find a better life, but I felt there was nothing I could do except watch. Modern society is built in such a way that we just watch bad things happen and then wonder why they don’t get better.’ Pared down to a hard-hitting beat and Leo’s soulful croon, the words paint a striking picture of this senseless disregard for basic human rights.
