Luke Friend – Hole in My Heart

After appearing on The X Factor in 2013, supporting The Vamps on tour and working on new material, Luke Friend is FINALLY back with his new single Hole in My Heart, which will be released in the UK on Sunday 29th March and can be pre-ordered NOW!

The track has elements of a nursery rhyme feel with its simplistic tune, however the raspy vocals and trademark tone of Luke’s voice provides a dynamic and exciting track with pure emotion which flows perfectly from start to finish.

The video shows Luke wondering the streets after his love interest and shots of him performing the track with his guitar.

Hole in My Heart is the perfect track to debut Luke’s sound and will no doubt be successful and is our Brumotions pick of the week.

Friend also embarks on a six-date tour on April 18 in Totnes, ending in London on the 23rd.
