Rhett Nicholl’s lyrics have always read like an open book. The London based musician has never been afraid to be candid with his listeners, with his brooding compositions of darkly toned melodies mixed with a generally somber atmosphere and passionate lyricisms all being born from his own struggles in life. He used music as a catalyst for recovery and wanted to share his journey with others to show the power music has over people and how something therapeutic, like writing a song about your worries, can make the world around you seem a brighter place.
Produced by Felix Joseph, Hold On is an evocatively raw number with the raspy vocals of Nicholl contrasting the clean cut soulful production with a future garage rhythm, making the emotion palpable from start to finish. It’s a hauntingly beautiful number with high amounts of vulnerability that makes his intimate soundscape all the more personal. Deeply touching, this is a track that’ll have you reaching for the tissues in no time at all.
