Holden Miller Releases New Hit Single, "The Thought"


Quick Thoughts: Holden Miller is having himself a year. The New York-raised, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter has released five singles this year, quickly establishing himself as one of the most consistent, most versatile artists on the independent scene. Miller has the rare ability to float between genres, as he takes aspects of bedroom pop, indie-folk, and indie rock to create an ever-fluid sound. With his latest release, The Thought, Miller leaned stylistically into bedroom pop, drawing influence from Alexander 23 in particular. The song begins with a single, repeated guitar note, allowing Miller’s smooth vocals and remarkable, narrative-focused songwriting to shine. Miller is a special storyteller, a lyricist capable of engaging even the most casual listener, a skill that he’s demonstrated across his entire catalogue.
