Hailing from our hometown of Manchester, indie outfit Test Card Girl is the musical project of singer, songwriter and comedian Catherine Burgis. Holds Me Down is her first single, and a mighty fine one it is too!


The song, which will feature on the Dave Fidler produced debut album Seven Dolls, is a deliciously mellow take on an indie-electro sound. The song has echoes of ambient folk in terms of the vocals and melody, an engaging style that has been compared to Kate Rusby and one that syncs perfectly gentle flow of the arrangement.

Lyrically the song captures perfectly the moment where love can become gently but completely overwhelming, something that Hold Me Down does with considerable grace.

You can also stream Hold Me Down on Spotify and Apple Music. A cassette version of the single is available on Bandcamp. Head over to Test Card Girl’s socials, including Facebook and Instagram, for news about the artist and the Seven Dolls album.
