I’ll be honest, I’m not a big fan of Christmas music (or Christmas in general), so when I was first asked to do a Christmas song for Act So Big Forest four years ago I declined. When they asked me again the next year I said fuck it and made an instrumental track that I ended up being really happy with. Since then I’ve been on board with these Christmas compilations and have been really enjoying making music for them. I’m usually in a bit of a musical rut this time of year and it’s a nice break from working on my more serious stuff and just do something fun musically. This year my song on the compilation is called When the Dark Goes Away and is sort of about the magic of Christmas fading away as one gets older. I wrote and recorded the entire song in one day and am really happy with it. Plus is has a vocoder. Download this bad boy and have a great Christmas.
