Fresh from the success of ‘You Me Myself’, Irish brothers Harry and Alfie Hudson-Taylor push things forward with today’s release of new single ‘Hold Out Hope’, as the countdown continues to the release of their eagerly-awaited third studio album ‘Searching For The Answers’ on June 3rd.

‘You Me Myself’ has enjoyed over 1,200 plays on Irish radio so far, and the track has helped drive Hudson Taylor’s monthly streaming figures over 400,000. ‘Hold Out Hope’ is another up-tempo, positive-energy track with a message everyone can relate to in these testing times: 

“Hold out hope ‘cos better days will come.”
