With an irresistibly authentic cadence, Kate Bond delivers a cutting narrative in her funk-laced new single, “We Just Want To Be Loved”. Seeping with the mind-stroking tendencies of neo-soul soundscapes, the track swells with sparkling synths and vintage reverbs — marrying old-school soul and modern pop in a unique partnership. Totally unafraid to stride clear of the status quo, “We Just Want To Be Loved” is an angsty exploration of women’s true desires — making for a difficult-to-hear yet beautifully poignant effort.
Elaborating further on the track, Bond imparts, “This song is really important for me and is probably the most personal song I’ve ever written. It came from a place of anger but has turned into something really beautiful and special to me. Hopefully, my message will resonate and hopefully spark even the smallest change in people’s attitudes towards women’s issues.”
Sonically vibrant and irrevocably relatable, Kate Bond has proved herself a force to be reckoned with within the industry this past year. And while we wait patiently for her next album to drop, it is safe to say we will be playing “We Just Want To Be Loved” on repeat for the foreseeable.
