New Music Video: Survive – Hollie Cook

Hot off the heels of two sold out shows in London and L.A., West London native HOLLIE COOK  unveiled more from her forthcoming third LP by dropping the double-A single ‘Freefalling’ / ‘Survive’.

The tropical pop princess has already cemented her position as one to watch this year after signing to the American indie label Merge Records and releasing the lead single ‘Angel Fire’. The first taste from the album received rave reviews from international outlets ranging from Mass Appeal, Clash and Je Ne Sais Pop and was playlisted over the summer on BBC Radio. Her vibrant, spirited take on lovers rock radiates positivity, allowing her to transcend the confines of a genre.

‘Freefalling’ finds Hollie’s sultry vocals positioned against a skanking rocksteady beat, alluring synths and a crooning brass section. The result is a life-affirming feel good jam which exudes enough warmth to keep burning all autumn long. Despite singing of the intricacies of heartbreak an unwavering sense of bliss prevails throughout.

As well as touring the world for years with Ari Up in the pioneering female punk band The Slits, Cook previously collaborated with renowned dub producer Prince Fatty on her first two solo albums – the self-titled debut and the acclaimed follow-up ‘Twice’. Singles such as ‘Milk & Honey’ and ‘That Very Night’ saw Hollie gain critical exposure via BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, 1Xtra and Radio X, culminating in a hypnotic appearance on the prestigious “Later…With Jools Holland”. Having now enlisted the esteemed producer Martin “Youth” Glover to oversee her latest LP – whose credits include U2, Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd – she’s able to unlock maturity in her ever evolving sound.

With supporters rallying from every corner, including Fred Perry’s Subculture, Jocks & Nerds and Vanity Fair, HOLLIE COOK is gearing up for a triumphant year ahead with the ‘Vessel of Love’ album release on 26th January – so expect to see her on top of the tropical throne of pop in 2018.

If this is your first introduction to this carefree upriser, well here’s your chance to watch the video to ‘Survive.’
