Melbourne-based producer, guitarist, and graphic designer Dugong Jr released his dreamy new single and video for “Holding On” featuring Austen.

Dugong Jr’s contemporary sonic touch combines soulful beats with captivating vocals that morph and erupt into addictive rhythms. Always inviting curiosity in his complex production, “Holding On” folds together echoing synth details with moments of beat-driven bliss and vocal manipulation against an alluring percussive backdrop. The smooth, powerful melodies from Brisbane-based singer Austen command attention throughout, married with the producer’s rhythmic pulses to keep the body moving with each and every listen.

“The song itself is about the idea of creating this sort of idealistic image of what a relationship is or was, kind of living in denial and holding on to that even if it’s detrimental to an individual,” Dugong Jr says. “In the music video, I wanted to represent an abstract adaptation of the same kind of idea but have it be more visually quirky and weird. So I came up with the idea of stuffing your family pet and holding on to the memory of it (long past an acceptable timeframe).”

“Holding On” is out now on Mad Decent.
