James Bay | Hold Back the River

Now this is what I’m talking about. It’s been so long since I’ve found a driving song that I can really throw my weight behind as I’m driving to a friends in anticipation of alcoholic merriment. James Bay absolutely powers through “Hold Back the River” perfectly blending soft melodic introductions with room rousing choruses that seem to be too often phased out with the advent of electro and ambience into the indie music scene. I’m not complaining about the rise of experimental music makers but sometimes I want someone to really raise the tempo and make me remember that there is still value in youthful rallying cries. “Hold Back the River EP” will be released on November 23rd on Republic Records. Get it whilst it’s hot, it’s the price of a sausage roll, lasts a lot longer AND has absolutely no chance of giving you food poisoning through contaminated meat.
