Aespa releases ‘Hold on Tight’

Song is from Apple Original Film Tetris

K-pop girl group Aespa released a new single “Hold On Tight” via Parlophone Records. The song is part of the soundtrack for the Apple Original Film Tetris. With “Hold On Tight,” the group delivers a dynamic vocal version to Aaron Hibell’s “Benevolence,” the powerful techno lead track for the film.

“Hold On Tight” is an addictive techno track with a familiar melody using the theme tune of the world-famous game Tetris that keeps playing on a loop in one’s mind. With the members’ unique expressions and vocals, the lyrics reflect the protagonist’s rough journey to tetromino.

This summer, Aespa is set to make history at Governor’s Ball festival in New York and Outside Lands festival in San Francisco as the first-ever K-Pop group to appear at either festival. Last year, Aespa made their US festival debut at Coachella in Indio, CA where they performed on the main stage, they made their official late night US TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live and kicked off Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in Central Park. Later in July, Aespa celebrated the release of Girls – The 2nd Mini Album which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart.
