After taking a year out from releasing music, singer-songwriter Luke White is back with his first release of the year, with his brand new single Keep Holding On – out today. Drawing a range of influences including James Blunt, Ben Howard, Damien Rice, Dermott Kennedy, and John Mayer; Luke’s sound delivers a stunning and emotive brand of guitar-based, heart-felt music. Accompanied by poignant and reflective lyrics, his poetic words bring a captivating storytelling aspect to his artistry. His latest single is certainly no exception. Created during lockdown, the song draws on the universal emotions and feelings that this year has brought; with the track delving into the struggles of the pandemic, but ultimately trying to remain positive and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
“There are two sides to this song. Firstly it talks about the struggles I have personally felt during the pandemic, and when being in lockdown. On the other hand, it goes on to show the appreciation for the little things in life that the pandemic has shone a light upon, such as family and self-love. The title ‘Keep Holding On’ promotes the idea of perseverance through this time, and that we can get through this together”.
Beginning the track is a gentle indie acoustic guitar instrumental that sets the tone of the song. With a gentle folk-element emerging onto the sonic landscape, the song delivers a captivating and enchanting instrumental; giving off the energy of a soft ballad. Alongside the soothing melody are Luke’s emotive and passionate vocals, gliding rhythmically over the vibrant soundscape. Following this brand new release is a host of exciting visual footage to accompany the single, with a music video set for release next week, alongside a Live Acoustic Performance and Behind The Scenes Footage.
“I wrote this song at such a relevant time of the pandemic, and I feel it’s a song that conveys multiple emotions of sadness, worry, relief, and motivation. Although a very personal song I believe it will help or relate to someone. I hope to make this single the biggest single of mine yet! It’s my first single back after a year out from releasing, and I couldn’t be more excited about the impact it could potentially have”.
