Hot on the heels of vaultboy’s sophomore EP ‘this is what i get’, the multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer returns with a cheerful festive track just in time for the holiday season.
Rarely does a song’s title so naturally fit the mood it expresses, but that’s what vaultboy’s latest single “christmas as a kid” has achieved. The track brings a spirited fusion of nostalgia and vibrant melodies paired with his crisp vocals.
vaultboy explains, “My new song ‘christmas as a kid’ is me capturing my warm and fuzzy feelings around Christmas growing up. It’s incredibly picturesque and nostalgic for me and pulls me right back to those moments as a kid with my family on Christmas. I hope this song can help others remember those good times, too.”
