If you’ve been holding out for a new Belle Haven song, then you’re in luck because today the guys have released a brand spakin’ new song, just in time for Christmas!
But don’t get too excited, it’s a sad, self-reflection track about ‘Moving On‘ (or trying to) after a breakup and the realisation you’re going to be alone at Christmas for the first time…
“It’s my first Christmas without / What am I gonna do? / This feeling is brand new / And an empty stocking too”
On the new song, frontman David De La Hoz says:
“Christmas is celebrated as such a joyous time of year, but for some that is not the case… While it’s sold as the most wonderful time of the year, I know I’m not alone when I say it rarely is for me. I usually spend the festive season missing someone, regretting past stupid decisions and figuratively banging my head against a wall trying to figure out if I’ll ever be able to fix past mistakes, which is what ‘Moving On’ is ultimately about.”
It’s been a while since I’ve heard a Christmas track like this (the last one being blink-182‘s ‘Boxing Day‘) so if you’ve had a shit year and just want to cry into your egg nog over that long lost lover you let go… then turn this up.
As for more new music from the band…. there’s more to come confirms guitarist Christopher Vernon:
“We spent what parts of downtime we could writing and recording some really exciting new material…”
