Single Review: Brother and Bones – Hold Me Like the Sun

By on Friday, 13th January 2012 at 12:00 pm

‘Hold me Like the Sun’ is my least favourite of Brother and Bones’ recent singles; however, don’t take this as me putting it down as I still love the song. I just REALLY love the other tunes they have been releasing of late.

The song benefits from the same rustic charms as its predecessors: the acoustic guitars are there, the strong baselines are there, but all with an injection of pace and high tempo. Richard Thomas’s vocals are easily the best thing about this single; his writing sublime in perfect harmony with the music. “Fear of falling/fear of emptiness/is that all that remains when we fall. Give me something to hold on to/before I’m walking hand in hand with the dark” – brilliant.

The delivery of his brilliant writing only goes to show the care and thought put into these by the writer. While as I mentioned it may not give me those goosebumps that ‘Don’t Forget to Pray’ and ‘Here Comes the Storm’ do, this single is still a fine example of why these boys are the best thing that you haven’t heard this year…yet.


The ‘Hold Me Like the Sun’ single is out now on Last Step Records.
