Speedy Ortiz singer Sadie Dupuis has released a solo demo of a new Christmas song called “Krampus (In Love).” She promises, “all of ur family will luv my xmas song it is adequately depressing.” Here’s a sample of the lyrics:
Here we go a-wassailing, assaulting what was right. Co-sign on the love of the earth to feel its light. Sign me up for choir if I’m the only lady singing. ‘Cuz all I want is solitude. Gift me reprise from you and you.
Bite down ‘cuz I love her, not because I need a muzzle. Even supervillains plead insanity in love. In the hero years we kissed under the mistletoe we’re missing. Sick of firing first shots on and off? Let’s make a break so we can say next winter we’re in love.
