Listen | Girl Ray share their new single and video ‘Hold Tight’

A new album by Girl Ray is on the way!

Girl Ray have announced the release of their third album, “Prestige”, which is due out later this year with the new single, ‘Hold Tight’.

The three-piece composing of Poppy Hankin, Iris McConnell, and Sophie Moss worked with producer, Ben H. Allen on the tracks. Looking to further cement their brand of indie pop.

The London three-piece today also shared the video for ‘Hold Tight’ which was directed by their long-term collaborator, Alex Cantouris. It dares on the side of comical interpretation and direction of the three band members acting out a performance dressed in cow patterns to the surprise of an on-looking couple.

“Despite being caught in heavy rain the whole day, falling over in the mud countless times, and Alex constantly holding an umbrella over the camera, this video was so much fun to make, and we will remember it as one of our favourite shoots.”

Director Alex Cantouris said of the video was to ‘mark his eighth collaboration with the group’, which saw the ensemble headed to the Lake District in the UK for a video shoot with the theme of “Bananarama meets [the] 19th-century Western aesthetic. Frankly, once cow-patterned clothes were mentioned, the video really made itself.”
