Holding Absence Share “A Crooked Melody” Video

HOLDING ABSENCE SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “A CROOKED MELODY” — WATCH

HOLDING ABSENCE have released their first new music of 2023 in the form of captivating new single “A Crooked Melody.” Accompanied by a beautifully stylized video that was directed by Lewis Cater, “A Crooked Melody” is an exceptional example of HOLDING ABSENCE’s keen ability to craft insatiably catchy songs that serve as a vessel for poignantly relatable lyrics.

“‘A Crooked Melody’ is simply a song about denial,” comments frontman Lucas Woodland. “It’s the lie we tell ourselves every night to help us sleep, but deep down, we know the truth. The big difference between a crooked melody and a lie, however, is that it’s sweet, enchanting, and easier to swallow.”

Tomorrow, HOLDING ABSENCE start an extensive North American tour as main support to THE PLOT IN YOU, alongside THORNHILL and BANKS ARCADE. The band is also booked for main stage performances at both Slam Dunk Festival and 2000 Trees Festival this year. All dates are below. Get tickets here
