Hear This: James Bay - Hold Back The River


Share This Article:

Fresh from a sold out Hozier tour, a brilliant Radio 1 Live Lounge and the announcement of a 2015 festival in the Netherlands; James Bay has dropped the first single 'Hold Back The River' from the forthcoming EP of the same name.

The 22-year-old singer-songwriter from Hitchin displays the same charming and melodic honesty that is earning him a growing fanbase.

James Bay

'Hold Back The River' follows feel good traditions of beautiful acoustics.

Earning its place as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record, it is epically soulful, filled to the brim with genuine passion as though being performed for the first time. Starting slow as a gentle calm the track then transforms into a stadium filling anthem with sing-along chorus ‘hold back the river let me look into your eyes’.

Displaying raw talent in the purest bliss, James Bay could easily be the soundtrack to the movie that can warm a heart after a chilling experience, to watch over and over again.

Hold Back The River EP is released 23rd November.
