Hold Still

Album: Veckatimest (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Co-vocalist/guitarist Ed Droste told Drowned In Sound: "Recorded on Cape Cod, capturing the echo and reverb of the piano strings (we sung into it). To me it serves as a perfect breather, plus I love the guitar tone."

    Droste added: "Yeah this song really feels like our time up on Cape Cod. Was never meant to be some grand song, it was more like a very soothing mood piece or something. I love that you can hear the fire crackling in the background."
