What’s this? The brand-new single and video from Danish artist Medina, released this weekend. ‘Holding On’.
Her first English language release in a while, right? Not counting any features, this is her first English language release in over two years, on US dance label Spinnin Records.
It’s dance?!!! Dance-y. We’d mark this down as an electro-ballad that, melodically, is very much in line with Medina’s biggest and bestest releases to date – whether in Danish or English. What makes ‘Holding On’ stand out on its own, is the early-00s trance elements that have been incorporated throughout parts of the song. They make for an atmospheric listen, with two different sides and shades.
More from Medina? For something totally different to ‘Holding On’, as it happens – it almost sounds like another artist, sonically – check out her most recent single in Danish, ‘Sir Det Ikk‘.
