Holland has released Vol. 2 of his twin single project. “I’m So Afraid” is a instrumental-heavy track that features a heavy baseline. “I’m so, so afraid” a voice repeats as the beat carries on. The video speaks to a longing for freedom, as conveyed through movement and contemporary dance.

The video starts with Holland in a red printed shirt, alone in the forest. After viewing a parallel mirror, the video transitions to following a female dancer, dressed as Holland around the streets of Seoul as she moves her body.

The dancing takes advantage of the free instrumentals, allowing her to articulate the rise and fall of the music.

Holland comes back in with his indie vocals as the video transitions from the dancer back to the forest where Holland stands alone once more with his arms raised.

While “I’m Not Afraid” told the story of a man living free of fear, “I’m So Afraid” is clearly a more melancholy pursuit, telling another side to Holland’s story. What did you think of Holland’s twin single project?
