“Holding On” – The War On Drugs [YouTube Music Video]


Directed by Brett Haley
Concept by Krysten Ritter
Starring Frankie Faison & Adam Granduciel

The War On Drugs have shared a touching music video for “Holding On,” the second single from their upcoming album, A Deeper Understanding. Watch it above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

The video stars actor Frankie Faison and The War On Drugs frontman Adam Granduciel. After seeing a white horse in his yard, Frankie heads into town, where he’s greeted with warm smiles. He spends some time at a diner and a pool hall before joining up with Adam and taking a trip down memory lane.

“Holding On” incorporates The War On Drugs’ breezy rock vibe with clean production, a strong sense of melody, and Adam Granduciel’s playful vocals. The track maintains an upbeat rhythm with strong bass and tight drumming. It’s easy to hear the influence of ’70s classic rock along the lines of Bruce Springsteen with chimes thrown in for good measure.

A Deeper Understanding is scheduled to be released on August 25, 2017. Pick it up on Amazon.

Previously, the band shared “Thinking Of A Place,” which was first released on Record Store Day earlier this year.

The War On Drugs will be heading out on a North America tour beginning in September. For more, check out The War On Drugs Zumic artist page.
