ash.ØK’s “Holding Sand”is an intricate and heady composition that blends together natural and electronic sections. With nods made to traditional / classical arrangements and more modern styles (e.g. drum and bass, trap), the resulting track stands out boldly. Holding Sand’s haunting strings do more than contribute to the overall melody of the song, but provide fans with a narrative as rich as any vocal-heavy effort. The song is like an onion; there are enough things going on that listeners can play the single multiple times and continue to find additional nuance. It seems like every time we hear an ash.ØK song, there’s been further evolution. Check out the video for Holding Sand below this jump.
