“I spend a long time holding you close. I think it’s time that I just let you go. Say you miss me now, thinking by yourself. If it was simple you’ll know by now.” – lyrics

‘Holding You Close’ tells a heartfelt tale of a young woman who finds difficulty in letting go of her significant other.

The likable tune contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and well-placed melodies. Also, the song possesses laidback instrumentation flavored with nu-soul and emo-R&B elements.

With each release, Elah Hale continues to establish herself as an exciting new artist to watch.

Her sound, reminiscent of a young Corinne Bailey Rae or India Irie, is soulfully soothing to listen to.

Also, her first published piece of music was the free-association song, entitled, “Porsche, Hat, Cloud”, via Tumblr.

The track went viral with hundreds of thousands of notes, allowing Hale to recognize her music’s capacity to capture a widespread audience.

Not too long afterward, she took a break from her college education when she was discovered by Interscope Records.
