Depending on where you're reading this from, your bout with winter is most likely over. While I and many of my fellow Canadians are jealous of your snowless streets and t-shirt weather, Academy has got the next best thing to satisfy my musical tastes and "Hold Me Down" until things get a little nicer. In keeping with their relaxed sound that delivers only the best of vibes, the duo have come through with a tune bound to be the underrated gem on your summer playlist. I'd even go far as to say that the song sounds like it could've been on a soundtrack for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.
Check the track out and give them a like on their Facebook page to download the track. There's no hint as to whether or not the song is a part of a future EP, but I think it's safe to say we're in store for some great music if "Hold Me Down" if any indication of what they've been cooking up.
