Every Monday, we feature new music from female-fronted bands. Today, we’re debuting a video from Foxtails Brigade.
Singer, guitarist and songwriter Laura Weinbach fronts orchestral indie band Foxtails Brigade. The band just signed to a label in 2015 and their first LP isn’t due out until March of next year, but the moody song “I’m Not Really in the Christmas Mood” is a nice counter-point to all the upbeat holiday tunes that deluge us this time of year. “In the several years since I originally wrote this song, I’ve genuinely tried to stay light and see the bright side of things,” says Weinbach. “But sadly the holidays remain a painful reminder of unreconciled differences and distant separation. For anyone whose holiday spirit has been shadowed by loss or division, I once again offer to you this song.”
Holidays can be a hard and sad and stressful time—hopefully this song and video will resonate.
