The track may be about heartbreak, betrayal, and uncertainty, but there is also a sense of hopefulness in it.

Whilst is focusses on a rather dark topic, the instrumentation is somewhat lighthearted – making it a song that you won’t be able to get out of your head.
When talking about the track, Nick Ryan explains;
“Don’t Hold Your Breath (co-written with Sarah McSweeney) is a song about letting go of a toxic relationship – whether it be love, or in my case, a friendship. It’s a response to people that don’t hold you in a high regard. You’re giving and they are only taking. They emotionally drain you, so if they try to crawl their way back into your life, tell them don’t hold your breath. I was inspired by that catchphrase which was used in a very old Nickelodeon show called ‘My Brother and Me.’ The quote is the only part I remember from that show, as it was only 13 episodes. I have many nods to 90s television throughout my album.”
The track was also accompanied by a music video which is now available to watch via YouTube below;
