Noah Dillon is somewhat of a local legend around the Perth/Fremantle music market, with every single since his 2017 debut The Man I'm Not seeing him go from strength to strength - evolving and growing as an artist as he develops his name in his home state and begins to branch out nationally. Armed with his five-piece band, Dillon and co. are amongst our local scene's most exciting and promising, something his first song for 2019 - Holding On - is out to cement, bringing together hazy guitar melodies and subtle percussive kicks underneath his crooning vocal over the top, which rings with this emotive, heartfelt feeling which really packs a punch. "This song looks into the enormity and injustice of death at such a young age and the trail of destruction, questioning and emptiness it leaves behind for the loved ones around them," he says on the single, explaining how the single was written after the death of a close friend. "After the initial impact of losing a friend that had passed, I found a fear in returning to my normal routine and life moving along without them. The title of the song (Holding On) is in reference to holding onto the things that make my life keep spinning for the person that's no longer here, because that's what they would want."

It arrives ahead of a national tour for Noah Dillon, who'll take his subdued alt-rock around the country for a run of shows across the next month or two. Listen to the single below, and check out all the tour details below that.
