Earlier this month, Adam Melchor and Briston Maroney surprised fans with their latest collaboration, “Hold On For Dear Life”. As the two artists are both touring and preparing new music, they took the time to work on a single that fans have been obsessed with. It’s an upbeat, happy song that just gives you a good feeling, which is why it’s Melissa’s DJ Pick of the Week.
Fans have been loving the latest single from Melchor and Maroney, and we feel the same way. It’s a sound reminiscent of that good summer feeling and sometimes that’s just what you need. “Hold On For Dear Life” is a song about taking that plunge into the unknown because that’s what makes life fun. You have to do things that scare you, because sometimes it’s all about the risk. Lyrics like “nothing’s gonna happen if you don’t jump” remind you to get out of your comfort zone to succeed.
To pair with the song, Melchor and Maroney released the lyric video that completes the vibe of the single. It’s like an adult summer camp, complete with a swimming pool on a hot summer day. It’s all about enjoying yourself in the now, and not reminiscing on what has happened and what’s to come. At the end of the video, there’s a more theatrical cut of the two swimming in a deep water. It’s a more dramatic take on the video, but adds to the feeling of conquering the unknown. Check it out below:
Now, Melchor is finishing up his tour this year, while Maroney prepares to hit the road next month. The collaboration between the two is exactly what we needed right now, and hopefully we can hear more from them soon.
