“Hold Me Close” By “Hello Fiasco” Is A Must Listen!

Hello Fiasco

The world of music has always been spiced up when exceptional artists come along and surprise us. Once again, the world of music has been blessed by Hello Fiasco. Hello Fiasco is a fire-brand Pop Rock group of five that comes from both Canada and the USA. They are on the rise and without flattering them too much, Hello Fiasco is great! Their tracks have tons of lyrical quality and their overall sound is epic. Apart from the uniqueness that can be found in their tone, you might think they are Cold Play.

Their debut album titled “Find the Shoreline” is an absolute worldie and so is the first single from the album: “Hold me Close.” “Hold me Close” is not just a hit song in my opinion; it goes beyond that. It is a banger and a mix of indescribable artistic beauty all at once. The highly-rated and emerging band were fortunate enough to have worked with some of the best of producers and sound engineers in the music business, and the result is songs like “Hold Me Close.” Much to the delight of fans, topafricmusicvideo did an interview with Hello Fiasco, and this is what they had to say about themselves:

The song “Hold Me Close” is flavored with rhythmic synth beats, well timed rimshots and drum kicks, beautiful piano syncopation and a powerful but sonorous voice to match it all. At first, the song starts with a syncopation of synth beats as the voice of Hello Fiasco emerges into the background.

Fast forward to the end of the first verse, there is a moment of beauty, as the song explodes and spirals into the chorus. The sudden wave of sound hits differently and sends you straight to cloud 9. Click the link below to stream the track.

Hold Me Close Lyrics

Lyrically, “Hold me close” is a masterpiece and can be found on Hello Fiasco’s official website. Overall, the hook of the song â€śWe do the things that we’ve done over and over before, a new experience is all that I’m asking you for” paints the perfect picture of the what the song is trying to say. After all, we all remember that feeling of being locked inside with our partners during COVID, and we also remember how the whole experience of COVID caused strain on our personal relationships. Even more so, we also remember that feeling of wanting to escape and do something outside. This video is a beatiful representation of that sentiment.

Below is the lyric of the song

[verse 1]

Why don’t we step outside -Take a car ride

Why don’t we catch a flick – Maybe we will click

Like we used to way back when we were new

We do the things that we’ve done over and over before

A new experience is all that I’m asking you for


Hold me close and help me remember

Can you hold me close like there’s no other

I wish you would hold me close like there’s nothing else

[​verse 2]

Should I have shared the shame

Have I been wrong to blame

My courage it comes in waves

And then it pulls away

I never say a thing – I never say a thing

​We do the things that we’ve done over and over before

A new experience is all that I’m asking you for


Can you hold me close and help me remember

Can you hold me close like there’s no other

I wish you would hold me close like there’s nothing else

Can you hold me close and help me remember

Can you hold me close like there’s no other

I wish you

I wish you would hold me close like there’s nothing else

Like there’s nothing else

The freshly formed Pop Rock band, Hello Fiasco, made their public debut at the beginning of 2021. Hello Fiasco is primarily Canadian, but the music band is also referred to as a “North American” band  because their lead singer Eric LaBossiere was born in Canada and now resides in the US. The rest of the crew including Joel Couture on bass, Joel Perreault on lead guitars and supporting vocals, Ivan Burke on drums and backing vocals, and Guy Abraham on keys and Ableton all reside in Canada.
