Single Review: Melis — 'Holding Hands'

Thursday, November 2, 2017

'Holding Hands' is the latest release by Melis, who was previously a member of Brighton-based duo IYES. The single is set to feature on her upcoming EP. 

'Holding Hands' is mellow, yet captivating. The minimal vibe of the track allows Melis the opportunity to pour all her emotions into her sentimental lyrics, which discuss the emotional turmoil of being in a one-sided relationship. Through the lyrics, she shares the difficulties of the situation she was in. Words that cut deep include, "for you I question myself / I can't find the answer to anything else". Not only are the lyrics passionate and contemplative, but they're also catchy. Melis is a natural storyteller and 'Holding Hands' is a testament to this. Though her moving lyricism is a highlight, it's impossible to deny the enticing nature of the melody. It glides through the track and you can't help but be drawn into it. What Melis has created is absolutely exquisite, and I can't wait to see what she delivers next
