Single Review: Mara Simpson 'Keep Holding On'
‘Keep Holding On’ is the first single from Mara Simpson’s upcoming debut album ‘Our Good Sides’. Even though the Brighton-based singer and songwriter has been releasing music since 2013, her debut album took its time. Still, this new single features a nice mix of modern blues and a somewhat folky pop sound already.
Musically the song sounds a bit like Florence Welch being backed by the Byrds but Simpson knows how to use these elements without simply copying somebody else. All in all, ‘Keep Holding On’ is a nice appetizer of what’s to come. Let’s hope the album ‘Our Good Sides’ keeps this high level.
