While most of the chart buzz down under is currently focused on his vocal appearance on Kygo’s single ‘Firestone’, it’s easy to forget that Brisbane lad Conrad Sewell is also attempting to get his solo offering off the ground.
‘Hold Me Up’ is a statement of intent. Effortlessly cool, eternally optimistic, vocally impressive and filled with enough pop sunshine to brighten even the greyest of days.
Speaking of grey… the video’s a black and white affair, but when Conrad’s cavorting down on Santa Monica Beach, we get a little postcard of those long, lazy Californian summer days.
‘Hold Me Up’ deserves its own time in the sunshine to develop into the big fat hit that it’s waiting to be.
