Desanka's "Social Distance Christmas" opens with energetic, chruchy guitar chords that sound off with fiery electric guitar riffs for a rockin' start to this original Christmas song. After a few phrases of the electric guitar strutting their tight riff skills, the song settles into a punk-rock vibe achieved by fast and muted powerchords clearing the path for the trio's vocals.
The song starts with a message about wanting to get a hug for Christmas, but having to stand 6ft apart. Even with social distancing, nothing is going to break this group's spirit as depicted musically by the high energy and intense track. The three young women (Desanka, Gabi Campo and Maria Campo) will impress you with their mad range as they sing the high notes as clear as Christmas bells.
The catchy chorus is a true sing-along. "Christmas - It's a social distance Christmas" is repeated several times and instantly gets stuck in your head. The band also adds traditional bells to give this rocker a sprinkling of traditional Christmas instrumentation.
Lryically, the song is clever as hell utilizing some familiar lines with changes for the times we live in. "Was the night before Christmas and all throughout the house
Not a creature was stirring
Cuz we couldn't leave the house."
Desanke's "Social Distance Christmas" is the holiday rock song of the season as it keeps it real and spreads good cheer at the same time. Her angelic high-scale vocals along with a powerhouse band make this song a Winter sizzler.
