Toronto slack-rockers PACKS are readying the release of Take The Cake this Friday via Fire Talk Records and Royal Mountain Records, and today they’ve shared a video for their new single, “Hold My Hand.”
The new track is short and sweet, clocking in at just one-and-a-half minutes, but it comes packed with some woozy, country-tinged instrumentals and dreamy vocal lines. The accompanying video follows PACKS as they make their way through a scenic landscape, play in the park, and roll around in the grass.
“This song is your average semi-country-western inspired heartache pop ballad that’s driven by a story,” frontwoman Madeline Link explains. “I had cut my forehead in a frantic search for stolen money, panicked in a parking lot, heard the drippy crooning of a bad band practicing somewhere in the distance, and to top it all off, I was doored while biking. Being alone and blue, I did what any rational hopeless romantic would do: implore my lover from a different land to fly to me so he could hold my hand.”
