SINGLE REVIEW: Holiday Vinyl by Blakeley

What do the holidays mean to you? Well, for Blakeley, it means being soaked in boozed, drowned in snow, and purring out her vocals for all those who want some holiday cheer. Blakeley’s “Holiday Vinyl” is the Christmas song that reminds everyone of a little place called home; the sweet silent night that turns your home into a Winter Wonderland. Now, of course we say this with a sense of vague interpretation because we each have our own Winter Wonderland that we like to dream about. For Blakely, it comes after downing a half cup of Jack Daniels and being able to sing her lungs out with the Christmas spirit. The song sparks a beautiful tension between the immaculate city adorned with ornaments, and a private loneliness that vacillates between love, neediness, and alcohol drenched desire. The song’s slow, languid guitar and Blakeley’s sonorous voice bring us the only authentic holiday song of 2017.

Just like the movie, “Bad Santa”, it showed us the other side of Christmas that ends up being just like everyone else’s Christmas, with a slight twist. Blakeley allows us to enter in her very own Winter Wonderland to show the world that Christmas is not just a one-size-fits-all ordeal that everyone should follow. No; Christmas, just like any general quote or movie states, is within you. Surround yourself with your own Christmas cheer. Listen to Blakeley’s “Holiday Vinyl” and dream your Winter Wonderland however way you want to.
