Winner – Surf Coast Song Contest 2022
The Express Empire’s “Hold On” is a song of hope. It’s about our efforts to care for each other and our environment against the uncertainty of the modern world and future. We sometimes move forward with trepidation, but by supporting each other and ‘holding on’, we can navigate the difficulties and overcome them together. The Express Empire’s trademark acoustic guitar sound and dual vocal harmonies rollick along here with a driving, evolving bass line and steady ballad beat.
