Song of the day: Phoenix’s “Holdin’ On Together”

Another song from my girlfriend’s amazing mix. Who knows if Phoenix lives up to the promise of this song?

Melancholy beats, dancing with tears in your eyes, too much cigarette smoke and regret on the roof of your mouth… but the main thing is that you’re dancing, despite it all.
