Overdrive Indie Rockers Fourth Son South Release motivational New single ‘Hold On’

South African Rockers FOURTH SON SOUTH are back today with their new single ‘HOLD ON’.

Founder, Vocalists and Lead Guitarist Peter Toussaint (also from Barbosa Experience, Fake Leather Blues Band & Hoot ‘n Anny) shares that “doing your thing is not always easy. If you don’t conform you’ll face disappointment. But do what you do, stick to your principles and there’s a place for you!”

Peter adds that “as usual, I started writing the music for this song before I came up with lyrics. But, as soon as I started with words, I knew this one should be hopeful and supportive. The idea behind it is that you should do what you do without compromise. And it’s not easy if you want to be successful. Use your heart, enjoy success of others but don’t let it change your path. There is no future in ‘if only’ and ‘I should have’! Musically the riff of the verse came to me in seconds and I worked from there. And I always wanted to have a nice twin solo in songs (I somehow don’t think this will be the last).”

Sing Along : Hold On Lyrics

There’s light outside the window
Painting all it touches red
Burning in the coldest feelings
Colour in tomorrows that you could have had
Could have had

In the sand that is streaming
Are decisions that you made
It doesn’t change the dreaming
Of a time where your intentions will be paid
Will be paid

Hold on to your dream
Hold on to your dream
Go against the stream
Hold on
Hold on don’t let go
Hold on it will show
You will never know
Hold on

On a cold and clear blue morning
You opened both your hands
Gave away your surplus
Now you are free to receive without demands
Without demands

Hold on to your dream
Hold on to your dream
Go against the stream
Hold on
Hold on don’t let go
Hold on it will show
You will never know
Hold on

Free from greed and expectations
Ready now enjoy the ride

Hold on to your dream
Hold on to your dream
Go against the stream
Hold on
Hold on don’t let go
Hold on it will show
You will never know
Hold on

The Band

Fourth Son South is a fresh band from South Africa, albeit far from new, as the members all have heaps of experience. The band was formed by Dutch born Peter Toussaint, a maestro on guitar. After bringing out his solo album One Day in 2018, Peter brought together bass player Franco Jamneck and drummer Carel Viljoen.

As a three piece they toured for a while under the name Peter T Band. At the end of 2019, the band recorded their first EP called Another Mile under the name Fourth Son South. This was released in April 2020, just as the world turned to lockdown with Covid-19.

During lockdown, Peter wrote and recorded a bunch of songs that now form the basis of their first full length album titled The Sounds Around Your HeadFourth Son South also recruited guitarist Dale McHardy to perfect the live sound.
