There’s a profound message and unique perspective that can be found in Canadian singer-songwriter Alex Frew’s latest single, ‘Something To Hold Onto’. Having made a name for himself releasing honest, introspective and relatable, teen-centric pop songs, Alex Frew continues to showcase his skill as a songwriter with his latest release; a thought-provoking and poignant song about struggles with mental health issues and addiction.
Speaking on his third original single, the Toronto-native shares:
“This is a viewpoint that I have always wanted to explore in my songwriting,” Alex Frew says. “It’s asking: “If my addictions had the ability to speak, what would they say?” This song is a way in which I can navigate that perspective.”
Divulging slightly from his penchant for airy, dream-pop inspired instrumentals and angst-fuelled lyrics, ‘Something To Hold Onto’ sees Frew jump on a dark and fervent instrumental composed of syncopated beats and a high drama melody. With highly cerebral and metaphorical lyricism, ‘Something To Hold Onto’ proves that Alex Frew has a lot more to show for himself, demonstrating a range and versatility not yet seen before.
