If The Shins and Best Coast hooked up one night, and got pregnant, Jack + Eliza‘s Hold The Line would be their love child.
Jack + Eliza are New York’s Jack Staffen and Eliza Callahan, two musicians that despite their young age, have each been writing songs since they were literally children. They met when Eliza filled in to play drums at her sister’s band, where Jack played.
Hold The Line is featured in their debut LP, Gentle Warnings (2015). Before it, they released No Wonders (2014), an EP which also featured the song as a single.
The track’s fresh sound, a sonic equivalent to the West Coast’s sandy beaches and cool, breezy nights, is a perfect way to start the week.
If you listen to: Best Coast, The Beach Boys, She & Him.
