about

"Jamie," the new single from Holden Laurence, combines elements of bombastic Rock & Roll (The Killers), Mope-Rock melancholy (The Smiths), and Power Pop accessibility (The Replacements) to create a fresh sound using familiar textures. Overdriven guitars, Juno synths, and driving drums and bass power through the song's riffs, building undeniable and relentless forward momentum. The narrative of being trapped between desire and unattainable beauty is pitted against the music's propulsive energy, breeding the unshakable tension that lies at the heart of "Jamie."

Track Name: Jamie
A gypsy smile
Feather hair falling from the heavens to her heart at night
Whiskey in her hand and lips that kiss sweeter than wine
And I'm drunk all the time

She's fucking with my heart
She's fucking with my head
A stone in my shoe and a fire in my bed
She comes with a scream
And in an instant she leaves
She carves her name with a razor blade inside of me

Jamie, Jamie, Jamie, Jamie

Simmering slow
Driving by her house with the radio burning low
A dancing silhouette, untouchable and alone
Somebody take me home

She's fucking with my heart
She's fucking with my head
A stone in my shoe and a fire in my bed
She comes with a scream
And in an instant she leaves
She carves her name with a razor blade inside of me

Jamie, Jamie, Jamie, Jamie

She's fucking with my heart
She's fucking with my head
A stone in my shoe and a fire in my bed
She comes with a scream
And in an instant she leaves
She carves her name with a razor blade inside of me

Jamie, Jamie, Jamie, Jamie
Jamie, Jamie, Jamie, Jamie
Track Name: Until the Devil Comes for Me
Last call at Christie's Cabaret
A sullen smile and I stumble to a seedy alleyway
A heavy sigh and I pray
Everything will pass away
Everything will pass away

Flirt with sleep, exhausted and afraid
Circle the emptiness like bourbon around a drain
The scent of lavender and I pray
Everything will pass away
Everything will pass away

And I will hold her linen scarf into the breeze
And I will hold her linen scarf into the breeze
Until the devil comes for me
Until the devil comes for me

A drunken gypsy heart and I pray
Everything will pass away
Everything will pass away
Everything will pass away
Everything will pass away
