Like Water, released earlier this year as well as a 15-date stint opening for Coldplay, emerging London-based singer/songwriter and producer Francesca Bergami, aka Lyves now makes her welcome return today with her stunning the new single called "Holding Back". The song begins with a haunting piano refrain, gradually introducing further sonic elements, from Lyves' signature vocal, to electronic R&B percussion, eventually evolving into a rich, string-laden soundscape. Lyrically, "Holding Back" is about uncovering truth and accepting that healing takes time.
Speaking on the track, Lyves says:
"'Holding Back' is about the realisation that, although time passes, some things can take a little longer to move through… it’s about the process of letting go."
