Persona 749 – “Christmas Song”


Rousing with a dynamic rock sound, “Christmas Song” is a new track from Persona 749, the project of Che Landikusic. “I’m coming home for Christmas!” the vocals ring out with exhilaration, leading to recollections of family holiday get-togethers — “we’ll be sitting around the table drinking with your grandpa who’s probably racist, oh Santa Clause I hate this!”

The vivid portrayal of December’s bustling schedule captivates throughout, especially with its multiple structural twists — from the harmonious jangle-pop chipper of the “gingerbread” sequence to the hard-rocking guitar/synth interplay into the reindeer recounting. Persona 749’s “Christmas Song” provides an enthralling rock-minded twist to the usual holiday fare.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2022’ Spotify playlist.
