In all honesty, we’re not big on Christmas songs. In fact, it would be safe to say that the majority of the times we despise them. However, Danish outfit Nelson Can have probably recorded one of the most exciting X-mas tracks that we’ve heard in a long time. Packed with a dark edge yet optimistic lyrics, musically the tune is quite epic as it shakes with thundering production.
Regarding the song, Nelson Can mentioned:
“The song is about Christmas from a Scandinavian point of view. The further up north you go, the darker the days are during Christmas and the increasing hours of sunlight after Winter Solstice on December 21st or 22nd still play a very central role in the Christmas celebrations here, hence the chorus ‘Solstice in sight. We don’t have to wait anymore. We will be bathed in light on Christmas night.
We wanted to make a Christmas song that combined the Christmas we know from modern-day western culture with the old hedonistic celebration of the return of the sun.”
