London born but Brooklyn based singer/songwriter Hannah Lucia has just self-released a cooling and swaying new R&B single “Don’t Hold Out” (which can be listened to here via SoundCloud).
“Don’t Hold Out” feels like being injected with a rather cooling sensation while watching something beautiful unfold before you. In a way that is kind of exactly what it is because it is a rather positive love song that everyone can relate to in some way or another if you listen to the lyrics. Noisey goes into further detail, saying:
“Don’t Hold Out” slows stuff down and finds Hannah Lucia sounding at once vulnerable and extremely certain as beats bubble up and synth chords swaddle and surround and fall away.
“I normally write quite melancholic songs, but wanted to try to be more positive in the hope that my feelings would be reciprocated by the object of my affections,” explains the singers, before quoting a line from the song, “‘Anything you want in the world / Everything you want you deserve.’ Yes I do thanks very much.”
With such relatable lyrics and good production I imagine it won’t be long before Lucia’s career goes further.
