listen to a new song from grouper

liz harris is set to release ruins, her latest album under the moniker grouper, next friday via kranky records.  harris has already shared the commanding single “call across rooms,” and today she’s offered up another.  “holding” clocks in at just under eight minutes and again features only harris’ voice and a piano, but the delicacy of the instrumentation is anything but a hinderance to the song’s captivity and the slow-burning, ostinato piano melody is the perfect nightcap to a long, long week.  take a listen below.
