about

If You Let Me Hold You' is the first single to be released from the Melbourne-based New-Wave band's debut album. The track typifies the groups sound with a driving beat, spiky guitars, off-kilter arrangement, pop vocals and clever wordplay.

The sentiment of the song revolves around emotional detachment in the face of unrequited love, but requited lust. The painful irony of getting what you want but not what you need. The band have been likened to a modern version of popular late 70's artists as The Knack, Elvis Costello & Joe Jackson, but their sound is unmistakably their own and tailored for the modern world. Formed in 2012 when English songwriter Lee Jones met American guitarist Laf Zuccarello in Melbourne, the duo quickly found a sharp-dressed local rhythm section and set about recording and releasing

The Solicitors debut EP 'Made To Measure' which garnered a lot of praise from online and print media across the globe, and received airplay on national and local stations home and abroad, leading to deals in Europe & Japan. The band gained some serious momentum and are set to capitalise on it with their eagerly-awaited long player, 'Blank Check' landing in October 2014. (Presales in August)
