"Hold On" is an old song dedicated to a dying friend. We didn't played it for month. Obviously this is not our happiest track ;)
We've played, recorded and filmed it live on 28th october 2012. The idea was to keep it as simple as possible to preserve the hypnotic, peaceful and fragile vibe of the song. Both voice and guitar are recorded together to get a natural organic sound. No effect, or reverb are added, no arrangement and other guitars too.
Sorry for all the imperfection on the video itself. Unless we've used 1 Canon 7D (thanks Cecile !!!) and 1 Nikon D7000 (thanks Laurence !!!), the result clearly reveals our lack of experience in the field :)
