Charming and caring, girlhouse’s single ‘ugly xmas sweater party’ can be construed to be pointing out the moment when we notice something different about our significant other. It might be of something that annoys. Or something that takes you over the line of irresistibility. We all have had this.
Out of the blue, we fall in love with the other, over and over. Out of the blue, we fall deeply out-of-love with the other, forever and ever.
“This song is about being in the peak of cuffing season, when you’re at the point when you’re really trying to decide if this is someone you wanna stay with or if this is just a fling meant to fizzle out by January.”
girlhouse makes it okay for us to feel the pressures of the holiday season. A season, that is pre-packaged with relationship-riddled guilt and the pressures to act upon them.
‘ugly xmas sweater party’ dowses you with some cold water, and with its delightful warmth, it makes you want to smile too.
