‘Don’t Let It Out’ has all the ingredients of a classic indie anthem, its shout-along hook, squalling guitars and pounding beats coming together to provide a moment that will echo across festival fields and sound just as irresistible on the radio. VocalistKiaran Crook’s topline simmers with the passion of wanting something more from life, with a relatable story of living for the weekend – an escapist topic that remains as relevant as ever.
A dark and dissonant soundscape lays the perfect foundation for Ashaine’s other-worldly vocal and soulful tone: as the track builds, Ashaine’s whimsical melodies take the lead as she sings “You can’t even hold your head up high, I wonder why”, questioning the motives behind a deteriorating relationship. The stunning music video sees Ashaine in unnerving locations with a hooded partner in a performance laced with vulnerability and serenity amongst VHS style cinematic shots.
