The new single, Hold On To Me, is Plume Varia's first release since the couple relocated from Denver to the Sandia Mountains of New Mexico earlier this year (moving the very week that quarantine hit in March). They were not only moving away from familiar neighborhoods, family and friends, but then immediately found themselves entrenched in the isolation of New Mexico mountains, during a once in a century global pandemic. Hold On To Me, recorded by Plume Varia and mixed by LA's Fred Archambault (Gary Numan, Avenge Sevenfold, Atreyu, Panic at the Disco!) is an exploration and ode to the uniqueness that has been 2020. Hold On To Me navigates the reality we all have experienced this year; that no matter how much we try to keep positive, stay engaged, 'do all the things', we are still susceptible to those times when we find ourselves sliding into despair, yearning for something or someone to hold on to.

Hold On To Me will be available for purchase direct from Plume Varia at their bandcamp page and on Spotify, Itunes, Amazon Music, Apple Music and all major digital platforms on 12/11/20

Hold On To Me

Been drinking more than I ever cared
much to say
Buying it all up, anticipate
Crushed candy sunsets,
wide open spaces dream
Been counting hours now leaving me
missing everything

Hold on to me
Slipping underneath
Hold on to me
Living in between
Cause all that's new is old
all that's new is old
all that's new is old

Fighting to stay up, out and clean
tried all the things
Fronting sleeping, sweating, fretting
Don't you know I'm
binging friendships, murder mystery
rerun haze
Meditate, create, assimilate
virtual faith

Hold on to me
Slipping underneath
It's not lost on me
Living in a dream
Cause all that's new is old
all that's new is old
all that's new is old
all that's new is old (repeat)

Plume Varia's music is the balance of lonesome lilting melody and the promise of assured forward motion. Cherie's alluring and imaginative songwriting married with Shon's pull to darker, brooding production creates a dense, refined and consuming sound.
