Harina - Last Christmas
German artist Harina brings us a powerful new climate change song for the season titled "Last Christmas". Based on the Carol of the Bells melody over plucked strings and sizzling moody trap production, she delivers her message with fantastic haunting vocals. Driving the message home, a child's voice says in the breakdown: "This year is gonna be Santa Claus' last visit. He always came to bring us presents but my mummy said they had to close down the North Pole. His elves can't breathe underwater. So I guess this is our last." With such a hard hitting and cleverly constructed banger, she's made an impressive splash with her debut. And I think it's one of my favourite songs of the year.
