Crying High Announces Debut LP, Shares Track Via BrooklynVegan | ‘♬’ LP Out 4/22 On Arbutus Records

LISTEN/WATCH & SHARE: Crying High – “Hold Yr Terror Close”

Arbutus Records signee Crying High has announced his new record ♬ (‘Music’) and shared the new track “Hold Yr Terror Close” on BrooklynVegan.

When talking about the track David Kleiser says, “Sarah Brunning sings with me on this song. We have been very close friends since high school, and this has always been our song. I can still remember how excited she was to show it to me, and how we both sat and took it in; how Chi Fukami had just hit the nail on the goddamn head, and how sad-and-then-safe she made us feel in her honesty and vulnerability. I wanted to reinterpret this Go! Team original as a remind myself and Sarah of the brilliant (as in radiant) truth behind Chi’s message: Fear is real and cannot be ignored, BUT it can be corralled and harnessed if you have your shit together and insist on going wherever yourself takes you. Thats why I think this song is here anyway.

The video was filmed by Airick Woodhed of Doldrums, another dear and long time friend of both Sarah and I. It was shot on 16mm film in High Park, Toronto- which is where I “grew up”

Crying High’s debut album ♬ will be out 4/22 on Arbutus Records.
