Christmas magic is in the air with the release of MoAnanda’s new holiday single “Acoustmas (Oh My Dear).” The power duo consists of two halves: singer-songwriter Moana and guitarist/bassist/producer/mixing-engineer Ananda. This acoustic composition beautifully captivates with its sensitive and direct approach; painting a vivid picture with relevant lyrics that narrate the brutal hardships everyone is enduring in 2020 — all of the personal losses and periods of isolation as we are still residing in lockdown, cut off from the rest of society and facing uncertain circumstances that we’ve never faced before:
“I wanna sit by the fireplace, laughing with you. //
But this postcard is painted in blue.”
The couple’s soft voices intertwine in flawless synchronization amongst the acoustic waves, transporting listeners with its pure ambience. The new song is accompanied by a festive music video that delicately tugs at the heartstrings, incorporating scenes of holiday traditions: decorating the Christmas tree, baking sweet treats, unwrapping gifts, and spending quality time with loved ones. The group even included footage from participants who wanted to share their memories to help commemorate the special season. This year’s holiday celebrations appear vastly different, delivering an impromptu virtual Christmas experience for many.
With “Acoustmas (Oh My Dear),” MoAnanda spread love and joy in a time of adversity with this shining holiday gem — the heartwarming song and visuals perfectly encapsulate every emotion of this socially distanced Christmas, capturing the holiday spirit in this challenging year.
“Oh my dear.
The city turns red and green.
But I’m stuck here,
Blowing kisses & love at a screen.”
