Amrap's AirIt | Australian Music Radio Airplay Project :: Rock :: Have/Hold - So Sang The Whale

Have/Hold - So Sang The Whale

Have/Hold - So Sang The Whale
After the release of their debut 7" earned them a '20 Bands To Watch' tag from Blunt Magazine, Have/Hold's 2014 EP Calm Your Blood carved a promising trajectory for the band. It was crowned the 'Best Australian EP of the Year' by Bombshell Zine and recieved a healthy amount of airplay on radio stations across the country. Kill Your Stereo even suggested it was"tantalising alternative rock", ripe to be "propelled into the (relative) mainstream."

King Salt is a record set to build upon that sturdy foundation, but shows a dramatic elevation in maturity of sound - highlighting the huge potential of the Melbourne trio.

Moulded from stirring vocals, classic indie guitar riffs, and a stadium rock worthy rhythm section, King Salt draws from an eclectic sleeve of influences, including Silversun Pickups, Manchester Orchestra, Restorations, and The Hotelier. But this isn't the kind of album that can be easily shelved by genre or similarity in sound. It contains elements that will excite every alt rock fan - whether they're craving anthemic crescendos, tender breakdowns, or just looking for something refreshing in their riffs.

About this track...

The lead single from Have/Hold's debut album 'King Salt', 'So Sang The Whale' is a powerhouse rock song that recalls the kind of emotive, passionate vocals of champion contemporary alt-rock and indie bands like The Hotelier and Restorations. Big guitars and an explosive chorus ensure this is a hit.
