Holding Absence, a band that can do no wrong.
"You are everything" is the slogan and if anything I don't think it could be any sweeter. This 4 piece post-hardcore band from Cardiff are everything *Ha see what I did?*. Starting back in 2017 with their singles "Permanent and Dream of Me", these boys have come such a long way. On October 15th, a post was put up saying "This was Holding absence" startling many a fan including myself.
Only to find a day later, the start of a countdown... a new era was about to arrive and no one was ready. However following their April singles "Gravity and Birdcage" Everyone was hungry for more.
Which brings us to the new single "Beyond Belief" and I cannot stress this enough, this single is amazing. It brings back the 80's sound in such an elegant way. I was so stumped when I listened at first, thinking "This doesn't sound like Holding absence" however it didn't mean I didn't like it, I love this song so much.
The intro starts off with a new sound, no one could expect - but everyone can love. If you haven't listened yet it almost sounds like The Smith's, Joy division and new order.
Lucas Woodlands vocals sound so different too! It's something old yet something new, a lower tone is what I mean.
The guitars sound so much lighter and they couldn't sound better. Scott And James have nailed the sound! Ash himself as always nails the drums!
These lads mean so much, even to a small lad like me.
I cannot wait to preorder this new album!
The Greatest Mistake of My Life is out April 16th.
