Lastlings – Holding Me Like Water (Original Mix)

On January 26, 2023 by ocedm

Continuing to expand and evolve their sound are Japanese/Australian duo Lastlings with their new single titled “Holding Me Like Water”. The song features Amy Dowdle’s dreamy and mesmerizing vocals combined with the atmospheric and enchanting melodies from her brother Josh. The tune was released through Rose Avenue Records, the Los Angeles based imprint started by fellow Australian group RÜFÜS DU SOL in 2018.

“‘Holding Me Like Water’ is definitely one of the more vulnerable songs that we have made”, says Lastlings. “Amy wrote the song in 2022. It’s about a long-term relationship that is coming to an end. When that person has already let you go and you’re having trouble coming to terms with it. The way that they hold you just isn’t the same anymore and you just don’t want to believe it. The instrumental pre-dates “Get What You Want” and was one of the first explorations into the new era of music for us. Moving away from the usual four-on-the-floor type beat felt like a refreshing change to what we’re used to and gave Josh a chance to play with different arrangements and placements of the various synths throughout the track.”

Lastlings previously put out “Get What You Want” in October, their first release in almost two years since their debut album “First Contact”.
