I'm going to kick off this season by featuring a few new Christmas releases starting to hit your favorite streaming and digital music outlets.
First up is "This Xmas" by the NYC trio Running Lights. The group, Mike Squillante (guitar/vocals), Nick Squillante (keys), and Steve Ranellone (drums) have been around the music biz for years as performers and engineers, collectively working with Melanie Martinez, Gnash, 7-time Grammy winning engineer Michael Brauer, and giving the Warped Tour a go. The guys came together as Running Lights a few years back, and have graced us with a Christmas song this year.
"This Xmas" (featuring Charisma) channels the ups and downs of Christmas when you are away from someone you love, which is especially apropos this year. It can, of course, hold meaning any Christmas time when circumstances leave you away from your special one, but here in 2020 it seems to have additional meaning.
For those of you who dig the modern pop sound, I think you'll enjoy Running Lights "This Xmas".
