Missouri pop rock band Hold Close have shared a new single, “Cloud9” from their upcoming album Time, out January 18th via Hopeless Records.
Speaking to the new single, vocalist Braxton Smiley said,
seeking hope until it is gained,
letting go of what holds back or causes fear.
a vision of clarity.
a euphoric feeling of comfort and love”
Time is the follow-up to 2017’s EP I’ll Never Go Back. After working with Seth Henderson (Knuckle Puck, State Champs) on Time, Hold Close put together an extremely personal, introspective, heartbreaking album centered around growth, love, sorrow, death, and friendship.
Made up of vocalist Braxton Smiley, guitarists Jessee Everett and Charlie Edel, bassist Devon Edwards, and drummer Marshall Martin, the group have known each other since high school. Originally all playing in different bands, they got to know each other through the local scene.
When asked what he’d like fans to take away from the record, Smiley is decisive. “Definitely the very first line on the record: ‘Time will always heal,'” he says. “Just give it time, everything is better. We all go through the same shit, you know. Whether it be everyday struggle stuff or family stuff or relationship or friendship or money or anything, it’s all good. Be positive. In time, it’ll just become how you want it to be.”
