Following their set at Download Festival earlier this month, South Wales’ emerging outfit Holding Absence have now debuted a rather cinematic video to accompany their over 6-minute long new single, ‘Penance’.
The track is a follow-up to the band’s highly revered double A-side released singles, ‘Permanent’ and ‘Dream Of Me’.
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Penance’ below:
Speaking about the song and the video, vocalist Lucas Woodland explains, “‘Penance’ is very much just an overview of happiness, sadness, life, and death. A lot of the lyrics I had produced over the space of months in my own time, and I just felt like this song did a great job of collecting my thoughts. We wanted to make sure the video did the lyrics justice, so we made sure to include quite a lot of open-ended metaphors so that the viewer could really take their own spin on it.”
