This is the debut single (double A side single) for Melbournes Have/Hold.
Have/Hold were a band for a brief period of time, that essentially came to an end late 2011 due to a combination of work commitments, and motivations placed elsewhere by members. All of which can be collectively lumped together as "life". Late 2012 found the core of Have/Hold, brothers Luke and Ryan Shields writing new songs, whilst reimagining a select few of their older songs. February 2013 brought the inclusion of former Brisbanite Luke Smith (Ex Marathon, Ryu Vs. Ken) whose experience in varied Brisbane punk and hardcore bands helped with two fresh ears, and and open mind about the Have/Hold sound and vision.
For this second coming of Have/Hold, it's been non stop since February. Whilst writing constantly, the band have made a point of playing with a wide array of bands from different scenes and communities, in the hope of winning over as many people as possible with their loud, cathartic and honest brand of indie influenced punk.
The song Dexamphetamine Blues has a Indie vibe along the lines of Something for Kate & Deathcab for Cutie, with touches of Brand New and Jeff Buckley.
