The Know – Hold Me Like You Know Me is available at Bandcamp.

Isolation can be the loneliest predicament. And hyper-awareness can often be at its most anxious in a room full of others. Sentiments communicated in the new video for The Know’s most recent slow-burn single, “Hold Me Like You Know Me”. Feelings expressed through a stunning interpretive dance sequence performed by star-on-the-rise Lexee Smith. It’s almost uneasy to watch her movements going unseen by oblivious peers. Heartbreaking realities felt by a growing number of humans as this world of ours becomes ever more disengaged and unbalanced. For instance, as much as social media is connecting us, it’s also broadening the gaps between us.
“The outer world is a reflection of the inner world. Other people’s perception of you is a reflection of them; your response to them is an awareness of you.” – Roy T. Bennett

“Wanting to be seen, felt, loved and adored. Although it’s written from a romantic perspective, I think this feeling is also true of friendships, family, etc. Especially in this modern-day and age, where everyone is so detached and in their own worlds, it’s hard to feel connected on any kind of genuine level.” – J. Farmer
