Dreamy Liverpool Indie quintet TRAITS release debut single 'Holding On'!

With influences ranging from The Blossoms to The Cure, new Indie five-piece TRAITS look set to take over Liverpool’s music scene having just brought out their debut single 'Holding On'.



The quintet formed in January 2022, having been members of various different Indie bands previously. Finding the perfect lineup did not take long, and their debut single ‘Holding on’ dropped on May 27th 2022. The track has already been a resounding success for the band, having reached 2.5k streams on Spotify so far.


You would be forgiven for thinking these Scouse musicians have been playing music together for years, and their feature on BBC Introducing is a good indication of how established their debut single sounds.



The indie-synth track is perfect for a spot of easy listening. Sultry vocals merge seamlessly with a lo-fi instrumental and with the added addition of slick synthesiser solos, a serene tone is captured throughout the 3 minutes and 49 seconds. Having indulged in this single, we can’t wait to see what the coming months have in store for these young musicians.


TRAITS will be warming up for fellow Scouse outfit, The Cheap Thrills at Hangar 34, Liverpool, on Saturday 6th August 2022 which is the perfect setting to discover this new talent. With a debut single as strong as this and a growing selection of local support you can be sure that there will be more great things coming from these talented Liverpudlians.
