On his debut, "Wild Empty Promises," Holden Laurence burst onto the Cleveland music scene and garnered widespread praise for his unique combination of 80s Alternative and vivid, vulnerable Americana songwriting.
“Wild Empty Promises is a fantastic debut that blends Mope-rock, Post-punk and New Wave deftly... with its bittersweet tone and cinematic delivery.” - Eric Sandy, Cleveland Scene Magazine
On his upcoming sophomore release, "Rewire" (May, 10, 2019), Holden expands his musical and emotional palettes with walls of synths and glassy guitars, driving grooves, and songwriting that is equal parts eloquent and visceral. The textures are more lush, the drums more bombastic, and the sonic landscapes more vast. While songs like “Shadows of Old Love” and “Mary Magdalene” are natural extensions of "Wild Empty Promises," Holden broadens his creative scope with the infectious road-trip rush of “Speaking in Tongues” and the heartbreaking honesty of “Rewire” and “Roses and a Romeo Mask.”
