' song "Hold Me." Today's premiere is to support the duo's recent signing to Nettwerk and the release of the deluxe version of their debut album Rise & Fall
, which features 3 unreleased tracks, including this alternative version which you can hear today. The full deluxe version will be released this Friday, April 14th. Gorgeous harmonies swirl around and create an utterly heart-breaking mood; fans of the Civil Wars, you're about to be fans of The Sweeplings.
The band talked to Baeble about the song, "'Hold Me' is an emotionally rich song. One with full swings back and forth. We wanted to create a video that was not only dynamic, but had the visual momentum to match the song's new tone. The lyrics are sweet, yet extremely sad and we wanted to create that feeling in visual form. A chance for the viewer to pulse through the lyrics of this song with us. Our hope is for them to feel the movement and mood of the song from the moment they push play. For the shifting layers to draw you in, then pull you back out as you go on the journey with us."
