It’s interesting to note that EDM tracks are not typically associated with the holiday season. Since more often we tend to gravitate towards pop, acoustic and crooning offerings for Christmas music. However, it’s important to remember that not all EDM tracks are created equal either. There are plenty of subtle chillwave releases that showcase a more subdued and relaxing side of EDM. Thus making them a perfect match for the introspective and sentimental lyrics that are characteristic of many Christmas songs. “Home For Christmas” by Linney & LöKii is a great example of how EDM can create a unique and enjoyable holiday track. So why limit ourselves to the same old holiday songs when we can broaden our musical horizons and discover something new and exciting?…
Most of the time we indeed come across EDM in remixes of our favourite Christmas songs. Similarly, however, it’s not often we find an original Yuletide song in the EDM genre. Yet, there is a rare gem in the form of “Home For Christmas” by LA-based singer-songwriter Linney and her frequent collaborator LöKii. This poignant festive offering tells a story of reuniting with the people we love during this special time of the year. It reminds us that celebrating together is what really matters.
LöKii, the Vancouver-based producer, DJ, and gamer, is a master of EDM, techno, and chillwave. His music creates a dreamy and nostalgic-filled ambience that transports listeners to another world. In “Home For Christmas,” LöKii takes the approach typical of Christmas songs. Yet instead, of sharing a traditional melody, the song features poignant verses that give way to a euphoric interlude in the chorus. By staying true to his EDM roots, LöKii has created a refreshing and exciting take on the holiday season. Adding to the magic is Linney, whose vocals lend a spellbinding and transcendent quality to the song.
Look no further than “Home for Christmas” by Linney & LöKii! This alternative Christmas song is the perfect choice for those who want to celebrate the holidays in a unique and memorable way.
Give it a listen and let it enchant you!
