Canadian singer-songwriter Alex Frew, who made his debut release just last year, is back with another heart-wrenchingly honest track, “Something To Hold Onto”. Set to syncopated beats and backed by melodic pop vocals, Frew’s captivating lyricism explores the potent subject matter of self-doubt, self-criticism and toxic habits with beautiful urgency.
Self-reflective beyond his years, this teenage artist grapples with these universal themes from a new perspective. As the track’s infectious hook takes hold, it’s not the artist’s inner voice that we’re hearing, but the taunts of a vice that has hijacked his mind: “I’m your fix/ Just take a hit/Give you all you want to/ I’m something to hold onto.”
“This is a viewpoint that I have always wanted to explore in my song-writing,” Alex Frew explains. “It’s asking: If my addictions had the ability to speak, what would they say? This song is a way in which I can navigate that perspective.”
