Yesterday, IHM shared a set of holiday tunes to capture the spectrum of emotion we oft encounter during this time period, whether exuberant or melancholic. But there’s one song we need to slide on in that I happened to let slip through the cracks. Dear Boy’s Christmas original, Cold Spell, is anything but icy. In fact, it’s like a warm embrace, full of comfort. The Los Angeles quartet presents us with gorgeously layered indie rock on the song, at once guttural longing yet sun dappled glistening. It feels like I’ve stepped outside on a freezing winter day. Though thick snow covers the ground, a bright sun glares overhead from a sky that is pure, flawless blue. That snow will soon begin to melt and the ice in your heart may start to thaw, but it still feels a little bit desolate out in the beauty of it all. Head over to Soundcloud for more of Dear Boy’s music.
