Girl Ray Announce New Album ‘Prestige’, Share Video for New Song

    Girl Ray have announced their next album, Prestige, with a video for the new song ‘Hold Tight’. The follow-up to 2019’s Girl was co-produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Ben H. Allen and the band’s singer-songwriter Poppy Hankin. It’s out August 4 via Moshi Moshi. To celebrate the news, they’ve shared a new single called ‘Hold Tight’, which follows the previously released ‘Everybody’s Saying That’. Check out its Alex Cantouris-directed video and find Prestige‘s details below.

    “Lyrically this song is about how appreciative I am to have found my partner, and how my mental load feels so much lighter and easier to bear now that I’m with her,” Hankin said of ‘Hold Tight’ in a statement. “The production on this takes some inspiration from Haim’s incredible record Women in Music Pt. III, and features a subby drum loop inspired by Atlanta’s hip hop scene.”

    Of the video, Hankin added: “Despite being caught in heavy rain the whole day, falling over in the mud countless times, and Alex constantly holding an umbrella over the camera, this video was so much fun to make, and we will remember it as one of our favourite shoots.”
