Birds Unltd. specialize in rhythmic, synth-heavy psych-pop music; “Still Holding on to You” is the group’s latest single.
The track contains five minutes’ worth of swaggering guitar, chunky bass, phased cymbals, and buzzing keyboard lines, these elements creating a forceful groove that anchors dreamy, free-floating vocals that express trepidation over a relationship. It’s like Franz Ferdinand by way of Tame Impala, the sweaty dancefloor and the hazy cosmos blending into one; it’ll keep, as David Byrne would put it, your feet on the ground and your head in the sky.
