Lyves – Holding Back

So this summer I had the chance to see Lyves opening for Coldplay in Milan and for the whole set my only thought was that she was born to be on that stage. I already knew that I was going to love the songs, but live presence truly surprised me. Now the UK-based (with Italian roots) singer/songwriter has returned with a new fab track called Holding Back, which serves as first material since the release of her debut EP Like Water earlier this year. It’s another stunner from Lyves, a mix of cinematic piano chords stirred with sparse electronic R&B percussions and haunting vocals that has become her signature sound by now.

Speaking on the song, Lyves says: “Holding Back is about the realisation that, although time passes, some things can take a little longer to move through… it’s about the process of letting go.
