VIDEO NEWS: Sophie Lloyd Releases Video For New Single ‘Hanging On’ Featuring Lauren Babic

Guitarist Sophie Lloyd has released a video for her new single Hanging On which features vocals from Red Handed Denial/CrazyEightyEight‘s Lauren Babic.

“I’ve been a fan of Lauren for so long, she’s honestly got one of the most amazing and unique voices I’ve ever heard, and she’s also a phenomenal writer. We discussed the feelings of performance anxiety and pressures of having a music career start in an unconventional way and subsequently being labelled as ‘YouTubers’ or ‘Bedroom Players’ a lot and sometimes people can underestimate us because of that, and that can get in our heads. But this song demonstrates us rising above that and releasing we deserve to be where we are, and we’re two badass women making a name for ourselves in the rock music scene,” explains Lloyd. “I love the heavy rock and bluesy feel that the riff and verses have, building to the end where Lauren showcases her screaming talents, I think it really tells a story throughout the track. I take a more laid back approach for the solo in the track, allowing sustained notes to breath and harmonies to carry the melody into a big finish and really tell a chapter in this story Lauren is singing about.”

Speaking about her involvement, Babic adds, “I’m so glad I finally had the opportunity to collab with Sophie. She’s doing incredible things in the guitar community. I love diving into different genres and ‘Hanging On’ was able to scratch that rock n roll itch! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!”

Hanging On is available to stream now and will feature on Lloyd’s new album Imposter Syndrome which is set for release later this year.
