The Bonds siblings, who began playing together as a duo in 2011 (promptly landing in USA Today with a cover of “Strange Powers” by Magnetic Fields), made a splash earlier this year with the breezy debut EP “Get To Know,” which recalled the English “alternapop” sound of the 90’s in a succinct and memorable handful of songs that reflected Jendayi’s mature-beyond-her-years songwriting.

Displaying a style that Jendayi began to hone starting with her first songwriting attempts at only 10-years-old (brother Gyasi started on drums at four), the “Get To Know” EP earned Jendayi’s songs their first bit of national attention. The “I Don’t Want To Be Alone” EP shows off a major step forward in the young lyricist’s songwriting and abilities with a hook.
