Matilda Bond releases neo-soul-infused single “Meanwhile”

Matilda Bond are a musical collective that hail from Brighton. Their unique and signature take on both soul and jazz has been received warmly by the music industry. This signature sound can be heard on their latest single “Meanwhile.” The track features playful drums, grooving bass lines and understated guitar lines. Vocals land softly on top, working hand in glove with well-penned lyrics.

Speaking about the track, Matilda said: “Meanwhile’ speaks to love languages and how we all give, perceive and respond to love in different ways; a topic that has come up in a lot of my conversations recently. I wanted this song to be an explanation to the people in my life of the ways in which I show love, physical touch and quality time.”

“My brain tends to run at a million thoughts per minute and it doesn’t come naturally for me to communicate with people when I’m not physically with them because my mind tends to drift away. Presence is my expression of love, being near someone and giving them my time and energy (“Spend a little time with you baby, I only give it to you”). ‘Meanwhile’ also explores that feeling that arises when it’s “been a little while” since you have had the time to connect with someone, that feeling of being out of touch and a little misaligned in a relationship (“Show a little love, I’ve been falling under waves”).

The varying moods of ‘Meanwhile’ are an expression of love in its many forms.

Matilda Bond create music to immerse a listener, and are not held back by genre or style. There are no rules or boundaries in their music, and their growing fanbase proves that this is successful.
