It’s been a fantastic year for Matthew Mole. Not only did the singer release his sophomore album ‘Run’, but the record’s lead single and title track has just reached gold status selling over 10 000 copies! The single, which was released back in July, has become one of the biggest local tracks released this year and now, the singer has finally picked ‘Holding On’ as the official follow-up single.
‘Holding On’ is easily one of the highlights off ‘Run’, and an obvious single choice that should mimic the success Matthew had with the album’s title track. The pop song is sung over a simple beat which allows Matthew’s fantastic vocals and poetic lyrics to shine. Matthew’s strength has always lied in his ability to express himself through song – and does so effortlessly on this single.
Matthew also shot an epic video which mimics the song’s simplistic yet effective nature. The quirky music video, directed by Alastair Thomas (Shortstraw) and Brendan Barnes (Crash Car Burn) from Mustard Productions, shows off Matthew’s light-hearted side and is incredibly creative and entertaining to watch. The track has all the necessary ingredients to become a success and I’m sure that this will be playing all over radio and TV this summer.
The singer has been working hard over the past few weeks. Not only has he performed at festivals such as 5FM’s Cape Town Live Loud, 947’s Joburg Day and East Coast Radio’s Durban Day, but he also has many tour dates coming up. Matthew has also launched an exciting vinyl edition of his new album ‘Run’ which is available at music stores across the country.
