G Matthews released an original Christmas song just in time for the holidays. “I Don’t Want To Trim Your Tree” is pop-rock with just the right amount of Christmas. Matthew’s powerful vocals intertwined with a piercing electric guitar and the familiar sound of sleigh bells makes for the perfect punk rock Christmas track. “I Don’t Want To Trim Your Tree” is now available on iTunes and Spotify. A music video for the single is also available for viewing on YouTube.
A perfect blend of holiday spirit and attitude, “I Don’t Want To Trim Your Tree” is the new anthem for anyone who has ever been called a Grinch. The single is about not wanting to be bothered with the hustle and bustle that Christmas brings. With the opening line, “Damn is it that time of year again? Everyone is singing tis the season,” Matthews makes it clear that she won’t be decking any halls this December. Throughout the song, Matthews sings about not wanting to take part in Christmas activities because of all the obligations that come along with the holidays. “I Don’t Want To Trim Your Tree” is not your average Christmas song, with heavy guitars underlying lyrics like, “Spare me this Christmas Eve, I don’t want to trim your tree,” and “I’m not in the mood so do it yourself.” Despite the not so cheerful lyrics, G Matthews wants everyone to know she does enjoy the holiday season. “I actually really like the holidays,” she says. “It’s just sometimes I don’t like the added pressure that comes with it.” Produced and engineered by Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Social Distortion, Alkaline Trio), “I Don’t Want To Trim Your Tree” is the perfect Christmas song for people who don’t necessarily embrace the holidays like others do.
G Matthews found her love for the arts at a young age. Inspired by legendary artists such as Patti LaBelle, Aretha Franklin and Hall & Oats, Matthews knew she wanted to perform for an audience. Starting off as a dancer, Matthews danced in music videos and on various tours. While dancing, Matthews had a secret passion for singing. To prove herself to her friends and family, Matthews got a band together and rehearsed covers that she performed at her birthday party as a surprise. Since that surprise performance, Matthews continued to write and record music she’s passionate about. Her debut album, Chasing Happy was released earlier this year and is available on iTunes.
In a truly infectious holiday song, Matthews captures the essence of upbeat holiday music with pop-rock influences and not so jolly lyrics. “I Don’t Want To Trim Your Tree” can be downloaded on iTunes, streamed on Spotify and the video can be viewed on YouTube.
