The Seasonal Mix Series is an inquiry in song about where we stand as the weather changes and the calendar pages leaf by.
Screw being jolly, weâ€™re embracing the cold ache of time and history that creeps into oneâ€™s bones with winterâ€™s arrival. The solstice doesnâ€™t officially arrive until December 21st this year but with all the storms â€“ figurative and literal â€“ raging around the world and in our own lives it seemed right to share this leeching tonic a few weeks early, a small reminder that itâ€™s okay to be sad, to have regrets, to wonder what could have been done different but make sure to hold onto the sure knowledge that eventually the sun will shine again no matter how rain presently falls.
