If you didn’t know better (and you obviously do because you’re reading this) then you would swear for the first 25 seconds of this song that you were listening to The Magic Numbers.
The jaunty beginning which melts into a cool summery sound is pure Romeo and co, but soon the distinctly Liverpudlian vocals, with echoes of The Coral and The Bandits, kick in and we know we’re dealing with a less-hairy prospect.
The Sonic Hearts’ lush harmonies are perfect sitting-in-the-sun listening, and with Hold On’s nice and short running time it deserves some serious radio play.
The single will be released as a limited-edition 7-inch record (on ‘Everton blue’ vinyl apparently) and as a digital download on 16th July.
Be a clever clogs and buy your copy here.
Hold On is released on July 16.
