about

„Hold On has interesting drums, the electronics are not overproduced, there's a tribal-trance vibe sneaking around. I can't explain why this song, though it's not likely to be a hit, caught me more than any other track.”

Taken from review on We Are From Poland!: wearefrompoland.blogspot.com/2012/10/hey-karen-twerk-numbersletters-2012.html [in Polish]

lyrics

my hand is shaking
i need you to calm it down
hesitation
is not very good for me
i need something
to be my own guiding light
something special
to place in my heart

that's the wake up call
for those who think that they
will last forever
that they are immortal
i'm not a preacher
i don't want to sound cliche
but that's future
in emptiness that fades away

although the times are tough
and the tide is strong
all that I want you to do is to hold on
hold on
hold on, my dear
please, hold on
when everything falls apart
and everything is wrong
all that I want you to do is to hold on
hold on
hold on, my love
all that I want you to do is to hold on

my head is wasted
i need you to put it back
in its right place
where it used to be
forgive my weakness
but now i need your help
to get me through this
to help me stay awake

although the times are tough
and the tide is strong
all that I want you to do is to hold on
hold on
hold on, my dear
please, hold on
when everything falls apart
and everything is wrong
all that I want you to do is to hold on
hold on
hold on, my love
all that I want you to do is to hold on

about

Hey Karen Eindhoven, Netherlands

Hey Karen is an alias for Bartek Urban, who creates electronica, synthpop, and industrial - the stuff that both melts your heart and your brain.
Home recordings and lo-fi aesthetic aren't necessarily a bad thing, since he believes the feeling is more important. A full scope of that feeling can be seen in his audiovisual live shows, which he regularly performs since 2011.
