Disclosure Return with “Holding On”


Disclosures return to the airwaves has been one of major anticipation. Massive anticipation. The British duo have arguably caused listeners tastes to evolve towards a slower form of electronic music. One easier to pick up on the finer, varied details.

Pairing with the truely incredible voice of Gregory Porter, the gospel-rooted voice provides a treble that really does do some soul-searching, capturing your attention from the outset and pulling you towards a transcendent state.  The tracks opening signifies the entrance Disclosure have made back into the ring, loud, proud and oozing quality.

The blend of ‘sci-fi’ chords, claps, and varied elements is carried by a major bass-line, one that will set clubs and festivals a like to dance-mode instinctively. The funky, short melody stays around to be enjoyed, savored, with Porters vocals progressing the song towards its end, with looped backing vocals creating an anthem-like effect, rounding off the 5 minutes in fine style.

With the video dropping earlier today, the duo’s creativity goes beyond just the audio medium, with a seemingly 2-part storyline acting substance to the songs overall story and effect.

With a start to their next chapter like this, we can only anticipate restlessly for what is to come next with links to Lorde and Sam Smith already!
