Holding Poison lay it all on the line via their unwavering and excellent new single, that will have your whole body shivering with excitement called ‘Sitting Duck‘.
London, UK-based indie alt-rock act Holding Poison, are one of those prodigious bands you listen to once in your life and never (ever) forget them. They push to the front of the line and show such undeniable quality on this gritty song, made with unadulterated fireworks, that sparks happily in your hungry-for-good-music brain.
This is the magnetic story about being with someone who isn’t in the same reality zone as you and you sadly fell short of their totally unfathomable expectations. They are so out of touch to the current world, that it boggles your mind and they are totally lost in their own mind. The sad thing is that you are now a sitting duck and feel let down, with only the pond to look at now to reflect, pondering life as you stare and realize that you won’t put yourself in this sticky situation again.
They rhythmically charge together like two batteries interlocking tightly, this is such a fiery effort from a new band in name, but old school in nature, as they power on to put those lonely hairs on the back of your neck, on full alert to this sonic soundscape of the very highest order.
‘Sitting Duck‘ from London’s alt-rock outfit Holding Poison, is a spellbinding performance that has you amazed and delighted you pressed play. They have unearthed a real gem here that is best served with a cuppa hot tea and the volume turned up on full.
