Von Hertzen Brothers have shared a video for their track “Hold Me Up.”
The song is lifted from the band’s most recent album New Day Rising, released in March via Spinefarm Records and the follow up to 2013’s Nine Lives LP.
Say VHB in a statement: “We were aiming for an honest, all-embracing declaration of love for someone who stands beside us through storms and rains. Soundscape-wise we wanted it to be very ‘90s and to achieve this we wrote a string orchestration that The Manics would be proud of.”
“Back in 2012 an artist called Tapio Rosenius drilled 2012 holes in an oil tank to make a wonderful piece of art. In 2015, an opportunity arose for us to shoot a music video for ‘Hold Me Up’ at this amazing location. The light plays a big role here, as the song is all about the having an element of light in our lives. Someone who is always there for us… like the sun… even though we might not always see it.”
Check out the video for “Hold Me Up” below. Von Hertzen Brothers return to the UK this month to play a set at this year’s Download festival.
