Cincinnati Indie Rock band Blossom Hall has released a new original Christmas song, “Midnight Mass.”
The chiming, folksy track sways like boots strolling across crunchy snow and is described by the group as “a smoky, meditative dirge of spiritual doubt” that is “more in the vein of Charlie Brown than Wham,” in terms of holiday songs. The aforementioned doubt can be found in lines like, “I want you here with me/On Christmas Eve/It's up to you/I don't know what I believe.”
“Bask in the nostalgia and melancholy that many of us feel around this time of year,” the band’s statement concludes.
“Midnight Mass” — which features slide guitar from the great Cincinnati guitarist Stephen Patota — and more Blossom Hall music can be streamed and/or downloaded now at blossomhall.bandcamp.com.
