Week Starter – Dawn Riding

Week Starter is our Monday column where we give you a new song to help you get on out of bed & help you power on through the working week.

Not only is it Monday it’s also Halloween (heard of it?) and so we want to start your week off with this spooky little number from Dawn Riding. “Hold On” is no campy holiday tune, it’s an eerie and menacing tune that feels a bit like Nick Cave taking a few steps toward the semi-ominous gypsy folk of Leonard Cohen’s early work. Singer songwriter Sarah Rose Janko doesn’t sound like Captain Bad Seed, but there is very much a red right hand vibe to this. Like a phantom in the night the song entrances and then fades away just as you’re starting to get a hold of it. As the kids used to say, its a whole ass mood and one we think is perfect for the night of celebrating the dark shadows we walk through.
