Holding Onto Life is Cloudshapes debut single, making it all the more impressive when considering how good the track is.

By Jane Howkins

Holding Onto Life mixes different genres together, combining rap and hip-hop with elements of rock and industrial music. The lyrics are very intelligently written, with the song talking about main songwriter and vocalist Jim Jagger’s mother, and her battle with ALS. Musically, the verse features cool guitar riffs and a haunting piano melody that work well with the beats, and the chorus takes things up a notch with an industrial rock sound. It all makes for something that sounds quite unique, so check out Cloudshapes’ latest below!
