BRAKES – Hold Me In The River (7″ Single)

Rough Trade RTRADS384: 4th December 2006
1. Hold Me In The River
“I woke up late and found my liberty lost, it had been written down in law as a security cost, twenty-eight days, I’m presumed guilty, I’m sure as evolution, I was not born guilty”

‘Hold Me In The River’ is the first single to be taken from Brakes brilliant new ‘The Beatific Visions’ album.  It’s an unstoppable anthem raging against the slow erosion of Britain’s libertarian laws and rights to free speech, including “Extraordinary-Rendition”, I.D cards, and most specifically the 28 days/90 days detention debate.  The serious and yet blackly comic lyrics are welded to an irresistible chugging rhythm, thudding Drums and visceral Guitar stabs that assault the ears.  This is yet another contender for single of the year.
