Two rising talents in UK music, Marika Hackman and Sivu, have joined forces for a new track called I Hold ahead of their joint headline tour this month. The two artists have crafted a shared cassette release, with each writing a song for the other to feature on. Now available as a free download, Sivu’s I Hold will form the first half of the tape release, alongside the Hackman penned Skin, through cool-cat cassette label Kissability. The AA release will be given away as a a free gift for fans attending the December shows – pretty cool, huh?
Produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J), I Hold marries countryside folkstress Marika’s beautifully feathered tone with Sivu’s earthy vibrato to create an eerie winter hymn that soundtracks this December perfectly. Be sure to listen above and follow the free download link.
