The disparate opener to ‘Holding Back‘ immediately grabs listeners; something within timing of the piano and the glitchy percussion brings forth a command to dive in with both feet and feel the track’s intimate embrace. Lyves‘ voice acts as a guiding siren through track’s building intensity, fading in and out as if within a dream.

The song discusses the process of uncovering truth, and in doing so perfectly reflects the message it’s trying to convey. What begins as a quiet, timid piano track evolves through elements of soul and noir rnb before concluding in a flurry of layered strings and instrumentals. Somehow perfectly resonating the mantra that the more you learn the more you see (or hear).

Currently in the process of recording her debut album, ‘Holding Back‘ follows the release of her EP ‘Like Water‘ earlier this year from which she receives growing acclaim.
