Every so often we will be a little behind on something (well, it happens more often than we will care to admit), but even if we are, some songs just need to be shared. One of those tracks is “Still Holding On” by The Felix. The New York City duo of Jeffrey James and Blake Skipper has created a beautiful, enchanting track that is equal parts nostalgia and forward progression.
The lifelong friends have taken the synth-driven electro-pop genre and turned it into a smooth, honest indie rock track that is filled with winding soundscapes and steady percussion. The Felix, because of their longstanding partnership, have found a way to balance their love for synthetic beats and melodies with the organic, warming vocals.
“Still Holding On” will encompass a wider audience than just the electro-pop crowd as their lyrics are poetry in a storyteller’s fashion. Their laid back style can be attributed to their wide and eclectic influences. The Manhattan boys will be releasing additional tracks throughout the summer so keep an eye out and hopefully this will the first of many great down-tempo summer song.
