Grace Sander’s new single, Attachment Theory, takes its name from a popular psychology theory that has been gaining traction on TikTok in recent months. The theory focuses on the way our earliest relationships with others shape the way we interact with others later in life.
Attachment Theory was first developed in the 1950s by John Bowlby, a British psychoanalyst. He was interested in understanding how children form attachments to their caregivers. His research showed that if a child doesn’t form a healthy attachment early in life, they’re more likely to experience problems with relationships later on.
The theory has been expanded on over the years, and there are now different types of attachments that can be identified. But the basic premise remains that our earliest attachments play a major role in shaping who we become as adults.
I like the production of Attachment Theory. The sentimental R&B-inspired soundscape soars with purpose toward a beautifully textured breakdown glittering with surprising percussive gems, before melting into charming layered harmonies and unbridled brilliance that instantly warms the heart. In other words, it’s a blast to listen to!
