Discovery: Jonathon Holder & The Good Thinking

Harder Than Life is one of the best tracks we’ve heard in a long time.

By Jane Howkins

Holder is obviously a very talented singer and musician, and this song contains everything we love in a song. It has great melodies, quality instrumentation, and even gave us goosebumps at one point. We also like that there’s a slightly eerie feel to the track, and Holder’s meld of what sounds like ’60s and ’70s influences with more modern ones is absolutely wonderful. If Holder isn’t the next big thing, we’ll eat out hats.
