Review of Back To You by Clara Bond
We have the pleasure in introducing another new act to the readers of Music Eyz, this time its Clara Bond. The unsigned pop/country newcomer is receiving quite a lot of attention at the moment, so much in fact that there is a good chance she will get snapped up by a label soon.
The whole pop/country thing seems to be hitting a bit of a crescendo at the moment with the likes of Taylor Swift making the headlines. Now I don’t know a lot about Clara Bond or even if she is from the UK or US, but here sound is pretty good. What seems to be making the new wave of country accessible is that it is quite upbeat. When I was growing up, nobody would listen to country. It was songs full of woe and weirdo long hair freaks strumming guitars. Now they are pretty cool singers.
I am not even sure Clara would like us saying she is country, she would probably consider herself pop. But there is something in her tone that makes her sound country. ‘Back To You’ is the first we hear from Clara and sets the tone for her EP ‘The Chase’ out on 5 November.
