Astra Via – A Christmas Spirit


Who can help but admire the dedication of indie pop duo Astra Via to release a new holiday song every single year? We’ve featured “Merry Christmas, We Got This!” from 2020 and last year’s “It’s a Prepper Christmas” in our annual Holiday Spectacular podcast episodes, and now we get to delight in sharing with you the music video for their newest single “A Christmas Spirit”. Singer Olivia Mancini, also of Washington Social Club, and producer Jarrett Nicolay aka My New Mixtape deliver their own spin on Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol with their usual wit and wisdom and a groovy doo-wop beat that deserves to dislodge Mariah Carey from your brain. And A+ on the costume department!

Hometown Sounds wishes you Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and lots more live music in 2023!
