The ’80s electro-pop rehash trend doesn’t seem to be letting up anytime soon (not that we’re complaining), and the latest act to release a tune inspired by that era is St. Lucia.

The band’s third Matter output is a velvety-smooth slow burner that you wish you could dance to with a prom date, thanks to its warm synths, blissful melodies and yearning lyrics.

St. Lucia’s Patti Beranek shared her thoughts on the track:

From the moment Jean first showed me the idea for this song, I’ve been in love with it. There is such an old-school soul slow-jam vibe about it. It’s sexy and naughty and is really about longing. Maybe it’s something secret that you can’t tell anyone about. A need to be with somebody, maybe anybody, and feel desired. It’s about how simple that need can be, and how simple it sometimes is to satisfy. Let’s just call it a booty call song that’s also about the romance of the booty call. It celebrates a certain feeling that I love in music, or in life in general: the space in between. The pull, the rub, where ying meets yang. A place where there is uncertainty but excitement. I love how it builds, i feel like you can get lost in it.

“Love Somebody” follows songs like “Physical” and “Dancing On Glass,” which will be found on St. Lucia’s sophomore Matter LP. Look out for it January 29 via Columbia Records. In the meantime, get into the groove below while viewing St. Lucia’s upcoming tour dates.
