Running Lights Teams With Charisma for “This Xmas”

On the rise pop trio, Running Lights, has released their original holiday single, “This Xmas (feat. Charisma),” a track addressing the reality of being lonely on Christmas. With emotional vocals and sleek production, “This Xmas (feat. Charisma)” is not just a catchy love song about the holidays, but a reflection on past years to inspire hope for the future.

If there’s anything 2020 has taken from us, it’s our ability to be close to the ones we love. This holiday season, those we care about, whether they’re lovers, friends, or family, may be further away than ever for a multitude of reasons. “This Xmas (feat. Charisma)” is a reminder to hold on to our loved ones and cherish their presence to realize how lucky we are to have them in our lives. Running Lights recruited alt-pop singer Charisma to showcase the two voices of separated loved ones during the holiday season. The juxtaposition of upbeat and catchy production with melancholic but relatable lyrics is what makes this song a unique addition to your holiday playlists.

On the surface, “This Xmas (feat. Charisma)” is composed as a melancholy love duet, but once listened through, it explores our current realities. “Like the three ghosts from A Christmas Carol; ‘This Xmas’ is meant to revisit the warmth of the past, understand the reality of the present, and inspire hope for the future.” As we reflect on the past holiday season and realize that we may be apart from our loved ones, we hope that future holidays will return to some kind of normalcy.
