Today, Ward Thomas have shared their brand new single ‘Hold Space’ – the thoughtful track is their second release off their forthcoming EP ‘The Space Between’ following the poignant ‘Pained Legacy’. The song keeps the mental health theme of the ‘Restless Minds’ LP and showcases the girls’ innate understanding of the inner struggles and conflicts many suffer.
Focusing on the story of being there for someone during a tough period of struggle, the lyrics strike a chord and are especially timely during this period of history what with the ongoing global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Powerful, moving and relatable the words of this song will resonate with listeners worldwide and will also make them stop and take a moment to fully understand what it means to keep a space for someone who is currently struggling. You can’t always solve a person’s problem but you can “hold space” and be a safe space for them to vent and bounce their feeling off.
Those who saw Ward Thomas support James Blunt on his UK tour earlier this year will be familiar with the track as the twin sisters; Catherine and Lizzy performed it every night and always got an exceptional response. This is one of their major standout releases and showcases their incredible songwriting maturity and stellar vocal harmonies.
Along with sharing the official studio version ‘Hold Space’, Ward Thomas have also released the lyric video which is a beautiful piece of art that opens up the lyrical story even further and creates a dialogue of openness and honesty from the striking lyrics.
The British country crossover duo never fail to deliver and this latest offering sees them grow even further in stature and musical maturity. Their songwriting talents are on another level whilst their vocal delivery just gets better and better with every new single they share.
