A lush new dream pop track has been released by Holden Laurence, ‘Like James Dean’ is about the shattered illusion of the American Dream and a combination of naivety, disillusion and despair. An on-going, non-stopping new wave-inspired pop song with clean vocals and relatable lyrics. Honestly, who didn’t or doesn’t want to be like James Dean? ‘Like James Dean’ sounds as passionate and personal as it is going to get and is the product of frustrations and disappointments dressed in a smart outfit.
Laurence’s sound has become softer and more mature, and after two albums this single sounds like the new chapter of an always-evolving career that’s pursued purely because of passion.
