Lisa Caruso has ticked off her bucket list dream of releasing a Christmas song, but the sentiment of the single goes a lot further than that.
Written in the midst of a grief filled year, “It Doesn’t Feel Like Christmas” details the toxic positivity that can come with the holiday season, a time when Western society expects you to be full of ‘Christmas spirit’ no matter the circumstances.
But if you’re keen to get wrapped up in the spirit of Christmas, this track still has you covered. It has a really cosy atmosphere, perfect for a mood-lit December evening with the warm scent of a spiced candle filling the room.
For many, the latest single from the Sydney artist will be the soundtrack to a good cry, but it still possesses the nostalgic sway of Christmas classics like John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over)” and “Last Christmas” by Wham!.
“It Doesn’t Feel Like Christmas” is a comforting blanket for anyone who needs it this holiday season, and even if you don’t, it’s just a really beautiful Christmas song.
