Tilian Pearson Debuts Devastating Visual For New Solo Single “Hold On”

Warning: This video is kinda, sorta, pretty sad so if you’re feeling a little emotional at the moment, you might want to save this for another time. You have been warned.

Currently out on tour in support of his upcoming album The Skeptic, Dance Gavin Dance’s Tilian Pearson has just released a heartbreaking video for his new solo single “Hold On.”

Speaking about his pop-laced track, Pearson said: ”‘Hold On’ is about mutually surrendering yourself to another person. Sometimes even when you are close to someone, you put up barriers of isolation and duplicity that inevitably lead to you having to lie to yourself. An honest relationship with even just one person can be extremely fulfilling.”

As for the emotional, grief-stricken clip accompanying the new track, Pearson adds: “The music video for ‘Hold On’ uses imagery of the relationship between a father and son, spanning thirty years. Moments of intense pleasure juxtaposed by the fear and shock of loss will hopefully produce the emotional satisfaction of a streamlined, three-minute classical tragedy.”
