New Zealand husband and wife indie folk duo Terrible Sons return with “Hold Fire”, the first release from their upcoming EP With Feathers (out July 26 via Nettwerk). The track implores the listener to pause before engaging in caustic debates – a poignant reminder in today’s political climate and in personal relationships, alike.
“‘Hold Fire’ was written like a ‘battle whisper’ in response to angry social media comments’ sections. I get frustrated reading comments that try to box complex issues into simple right and wrong side arguments. I wanted to express the feeling of waiting in the discomfort of uneasy answers, waiting in the grey; sitting between one side and the other before firing off your opposition. Sometimes it just doesn’t bring out the best of humanity,” says the band.
