“Hold On” was one of the great pop moments on SBTRKT’s outstanding self-titled album from last year, and that track now comes bearing a video. This feels like a big budget clip for Aaron Jerome’s project, suggesting his label is giving this another push—and rightly so. The narrative-driven clip works perfectly with the gloomy, late-night feel of the song, which is positively aching to be heard by a wider audience. This song demonstrates the neat interplay that Jerome and singer Sampha are highly skilled at working up, with the latter’s touching vocal cracking in all the right places while a bed of gently plinked vibraphone ripples beneath him. Watch the video below.
