Currently on tour in the USA with Olivia Rodrigo, Grantham performer Holly Humberstone has released her new single 'Sleep Tight', along with a frankly astounding music video. Written with The 1975's Matt Healy and longtime collaborator Rob Milton, the track explores a period last summer when Holly started catching feelings for a friend and didn’t know how to navigate the risk of losing them if she blurred the lines between friendship and romance.
On 'Sleep Tight' Holly says: "It’s awkward trying to navigate catching feelings for a friend, as they are often feelings we might have been suppressing for some time. When they float o the surface, you have to weigh up the risks of getting hurt and potentially losing them in your life. I wrote ‘Sleep Tight’ about the uncertainty of friendships evolving into something more. The first summer out of lockdown was pretty crazy for my friends and I because we finally had our freedom back and acted like we had nothing to lose. This song takes me back to that time of what felt like no consequences and impending heartbreak"
A true breakthrough artists, Holly Humberstone has been the recipient of the BRIT Rising Star Award, NME awards and was nominated for a prestigious Ivor Novella award.
