"Holdin' On" leads off Eureka and here the band gives us an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse of their touring life, busking their way through the tune on their tour bus.

Rooney has been busy this summer touring their new self-released album Eureka, their third full-length album of sunny California pop with AM radio melodies and harmonies. “Holdin’ On” leads off that album and here the band gives us an exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpse of their touring life, busking their way through the tune on their tour bus. The spare acoustic arrangement is rather nice, putting those harmonies front and center.
