RAC - Hard to Hold (ft. Tegan & Sara)

4/03/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments

Hi, I'm RAC's number one fan. It is pretty much 100% guaranteed that I will like every bouncy little ditty that they release. No doubt their specialty is remixes, however their first original creation "Hollywood" ft. Penguin Prison was MODEF my summer anthem of 2012 and to this day is my favorite track of theirs. Unfortunately, my allegiance to RAC couldn't make me adore their recently dropped album "Strangers." It is definitely a solid effort full of what they do best - poppy, happy go lucky tunes perfect for driving with the windows down - however, it doesn't quite triumph over their previous remix glory. Being the most catchy song on the album and featuring indie princesses Tegan & Sara, "Hard to Hold" deserves a shout out. It will catapult you into spring with some feel good vibes. Also receiving honorable mention is their collab with St. Lucia titled "Ready For It." Although it drags just a smidge in my opinion, homeboy's voice makes me feel like I'm on some serious uppers (I mean that in a sincerely positive way). Fear not RAC, I am your perpetual fan girl. Here's to hoping their sophomore effort brings a little more to celebrate...
